Archaeology Notes

ND24NW 4 2423 4910.

At ND 2423 4910, along the outside of the N wall of a ruined croft-house, collapse has exposed for a length of 2.7m a subterranean stone-lined passage, 0.8m average width. A square-ended E terminal is evident in the structure. At the W end of the collapsed stretch, the feature starts to descend under a lintelled roof, but at this point becomes flooded and nothing further can be seen.

This may be a souterrain.

Visited by OS (J M) 9 December 1982.
