Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 170 5859 3533

A sub-rectangular drystone 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 is built into the hillside and measures 5.8m x 2.8m internally. It has rounded corners and a 0.7m wide entrance in the SE wall. The walls stand to a maximum height of 1.2m and are 0.5m thick. Inside there is a stoney platform, 1.2m x 1m. There are no other internal features.
