Two stone pillars, situated at head of a small natural bay on NE side of Loch an Eich Uidhir, were noted by Headland Archaeology during a pre-afforestation survey (NMRS MS 899/63, no.6). Both pillars have stone-chocked sockets. N pillar is roughly 1.2m long by 0.4m wide and 0.2m thick and is erect. S pillar is roughly 0.8m long by 0.2m by 0.2m but has fallen. The stones may represent fishing-marks.
