Description

A controlled strip archaeological watching brief was carried out by RoCAS in 2013 on the site of a new house at land 140m to the northwest of Ardvasar Youth Hostel, Armadale, Skye. The ground had been disturbed in construction of the three levelled house platforms, which were located on the shoreline but the exposed sections showed poor quality soils, with limited drainage, unsuitable for settlement. There were no archaeological features or finds identified. <1>
