(NS 3812 7355) Langbank West Crannog: Due to a threat by the construction of the new M8 motorway, preliminary investigations by the Renfrew Archaeological Society confirmed that this structure is roughly circular, about 100ft across, and is marked by a well-defined ring of piles, especially on the W side.

Information from Mr J Hunter (Paisley Museum), 3 November 1972.

NS 3813 7355. A low mound of consolidated stones was fieldwalked and surveyed during the summer of 1997. Along the western margin of the site three small piles were found and further investigation revealed them to have square sections. Contour survey of the site and the surrounding sandbanks showed a raised linear feature, and indicated that the whole site is situated on a raised mound. Visual survey found a small amount of animal bones of the surface.
