Full Description

NMRS Report: (10/12/2004)
NM48SW 10 4182 8051 <1>

This building lies on the old storm beach above the High Water Mark at Toaluinn. It measures 13.4m from NNW to SSE by 5.4m transversely within a wall reduced to a boulder-faced bank 2.2m in thickness and up to 0.5m in height. The building appears to narrow internally towards the SSE end, and has an outshot on the NNW, its WSW side formed by a volcanic dyke. A low mound running up the interior is probably a lazy bed. Further lazy beds are visible to the S and SE.
