Full Description

Surveyed by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in November 2009. A possible crannog is located close to the north end of Loch Awe, approximately 20m from the eastern shore. Only c.0.5m of the island is visible above the waterline at the present time. It is covered with moss, grass and trees and there is no evidence of any man-made activity. There is no apparent stonework and no causeway visible at the time of survey. It lies approximately 200m from another possible crannog (MHG13053). <1>
