Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 176 5830 3507

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 measures 4.3m x 2.9m internally and has rounded corners. The walls survive to a maximum of 0.8m in height and are around a metre thick. There is an entrance in the N wall, 0.8m thick. The structure stands on the foundations of an earlier building, 8.9m long with a rounded end.
