A field bank, 63m in length, 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 joins with another bank to create a large field with a steep slope. Within is an area of rig-and-furrow cultivation, 4m wide.
