NG 5983 3675 to NG 5990 3698 - Field System (Feature 91). To the north of the 4 miles stone (from Raasay House), where the track starts a gradual incline, there is a flat terrace of land just below the track and to its east. The flat terrace extends to the north for some 250m and is barely 45m wide at any point. On it are the remains of agricultural use evident in clearance cairns and land division banks which often extend to the west up the slope, under the track and on to the base of the crags under Beinn na Leac.
Site identified during an archaeological survey of the townships of Hallaig and An Leac and the surrounding area.
ACFA, 2004.
