This site was recorded by the Scotland's First Settlers project in 2002. 13 lithics were found on a raised beach (40m OD). The assemblage included one debitage flake and 12 regular flakes. 11 pieces were quartz with one piece of Rum bloodstone and one of chalcedonic silica. The assemblage suggests prehistoric activity but is not large and has no period specific information. <2>-<5>
