Archaeology Notes

NS53NE 153 5599 35177 (centred)

A building, thought to be a former barn or store, was recorded here during a field survey of the Suisnish area of Raasay by ACFA, who have conducted surveys on the island every year since 1995. A later dyke has been built up to the structure, which measures 5.6m x 2.4m. The turf covered walls only survive to a height of 0.4m but the later dyke has been built on top of the E and SW walls, raising them to 0.7m-1m.
