Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 157 5599 3517 (centred)

A long, round-ended ruinous building 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. it measures 13.6m x 6.4m with walls up to 0.8m high and 1.5m wide. The walls are of drystone construction, are double-faced with a rubble core and are now turf covered. The E wall has an entrance, where the walls are thickest. A small oval structure, 5.9m x 2.1m, shares the NE wall of the main building. A later enclosing dyke has blocked up the entrance of the main building.
