Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 166 5867 3545

The remains of a longhouse, 12m x 4m, 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. The walls of the house are double-faced and have a rubble infill. They survive to a maximum height of 8 course, or 1.4m. They are a metre thick and have no sign of being mortared. The corners of the building are rounded. The E wall has an entrance 1.2m wide.

Slightly downslope is a U-shaped enclosure, 5m x 4m.
