NG 8186 5531 Camas an Leim Rock shelter, lithics recovered
K Hardy and C R Wickham-Jones 2002
A surface find of a chalcedonic silica flake was made by the Scotland's First Settlers Project in 2002 from this rock shelter. The isolated find suggests human activity, though more work is needed to provide any detail. This site may well be part of a wider complex including SFS 188, Camas an Leim 2 (MHG46055). <1>
