Field Visit (29 July 2021)

A small stone of Lewisian gneiss stands in a shallow hollow with chocking stones exposed around its base. It measures 0.5m in width and 0.3m in thickness and stands no more than 0.8 in height. While there are other large stones in the vicinity, none form a coherent pattern indicating the presence of a stone circle or the foundations of a structure. A stretch of boulder wall 29m long was recorded about 44m to the E on the date of visit.
