Full Description

RCAHMS Canmore description:
Reconnaissance survey carried out with the aim of identifying evidence for Norse settlement in Northern Argyll. It was targeted at a number of locations with surviving Old Norse placenames. The aim was to locate archaeological remains that could go back to the medieval period and to generate discussion of this evidence. The locations selected for systematic survey were those with very little known archaeology. In addition a number of sites were identified from the RCAHMS database as potentially relevant.
Reidh Dhail shielings were identified during a visit to the post-medieval settlement of Reidh Dhail (NM46SW 1).
Possible shielings NM 43600 64400 Remains of at least six structures consisting of low stone footings.
Report to be deposited with RCAHMS and Highland SMR in due course.
Funder: Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland and the Caledonian Research Foundation.
