Archaeology Notes

NR45SE 11 4659 5245

NR 466 525. A roughly circular structure lies in a hollow between Trudernish Farm field and the cliff on the N side of Aros Bay. It measures 15ft by 12ft within 3ft walls widening to 6ft at the entrance, in the E.

To the right of the entrance is a 5ft by 5ft recess.

I D Shanks 1972.

NR 4659 5245. Mr Shanks pointed this feature out on the map.

It consists of three small grass-covered stony mounds fortuitously forming a semi-circle and in no way resembling an antiquity. It is similar to other stony mounds in the area (see NR45SE 20) and is probably of 18th-19th century date.

Visited by OS (BS) 24 June 1978; (undated) information from I D Shanks, 85 Frederick Crescent, Port Ellen.
