(NM 953 342) A farmstead, which comprises a complex of roofless buildings attached to a yard, which is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Argyllshire 1875, sheet lxxxvii) and is not shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1975).

Information from RCAHMS (PM) 23 June 1995

"At one time there apparently has been buildings on [the island] as at one place there are a great number of stones but the formation cannot be traced." (Name Book)

After further examination the depiction of this farmstead on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Argyllshire 1875, sheet lxxxvii) may comprise two unroofed buildings attached to two conjoined enclosures, one of which is incomplete.
