A hut circle at Rhiconich, Eddrachillis, was excavated by GUARD in 1993 prior to its destruction by roadworks. The site remains undated until specialist analysis of the finds and radiocarbon assay have been completed. <1> <2> <3> <4> <5> <6> <7> <8> <9> <10> <11> <12> <13>

Radio-carbon dating was subsequently carried out but a full report, which was intended to be published after submission to Historic Scotland, has not appeared. However, a final draft as submitted for publication in PSAS in 1997 was produced. <14>
