Archaeology Notes

NR27SW 20 240 710

Settlement and field system, comprising enclosures, field walls and stone scatter, exposed in an area of rapid erosion. 'Of special interest is a cist-like arrangement of slabs associated with a spread of quartz pebbles and a roughly circular structure containing numerous sherds of pottery (now in the possession of the Museum of Islay Life) of possible Food Vessel type and worked stone and flint. On all stabilised surfaces fling coves and waste flakes abound.'

Information contained in letter from R McCullagh to Dr N Fojut, SDD/AM. 14 March 1984.
