The remains of a long, bow-ended house and associated enclosure were recorded here during a field survey of the Suisnish area of Raasay by ACFA, who have conducted surveys on the island every year since 1995. The house measures 10.4m x 3.5m and its walls are 1.2m thick and survive to a height of 0.6m. A series of banks and a dyke enclose an area adjoining the house 19m x 12m.
