Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 177 5830 3507

A rectangular building of rough drystone and measuring 10m x 3.8m 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 survive to a metre in height and are 0.9m thick. There is a 1m wide entrance in the north wall and there is a poorly-defined sub-circular enclosure, 10m x 7.5m, lying 12m downslope.
