EHG2669 - Field survey - Eilean Loch Airceig, Kilmallie
Sunart Oakwoods Research Group
Jun - Aug 2006
A desk-based assessment and intensive walk-over survey were conducted on the island in the summer of 2007. The presence of a crannog, timber-laced vitrifed fort, causeway, chapel, burial ground, a possible building and a possible jetty were recorded, and the desk-based assessment cited historic mentions of a prison, tree plantation and grazing land. Further archaeological work was recommended to better understand the island's past. <1> <2> <3>
