Archaeology Notes

NM84SE 60 854 437

Formerly entered as NM84SE 2.01.

NM 854 437 Fish trap with a roughly faced wall with rubble infill, enclosing about two-thirds of the small SW-facing bay sheltered by the headland on which the castle (NM84SE 2) stands. It has angled straight sides and is degraded in places. The W side of the beach has been cleared of obstructions to facilitate boat access. At the W edge of the bay, abutting the rock face, are the partially tumbled remains of a small quay.

Archive to be deposited in NMRS.
