Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 164 5860 3550

A tumbled D-shaped enclosure 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 7m x 7m and has walls surviving to a height of around 0.6m and 0.6m wide. There appears to have been 3 entrances, 0.7m wide (E wall), 1.2m wide (S wall) and 1.4m wide (N wall). There may have been a small pen in the NE corner.
