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.
The enclosure at Loch Mudle has been observed from the road and was visited to establish if there were any associated structures.
Enclosure NM 53580 67350 Large irregular enclosure in substantial turf and stone dyke. There was some evidence of cultivation but no evidence of any structural remains. Dimensions c220 x 120m.
Report to be deposited with RCAHMS and Highland SMR in due course.
Funder: Carnegie Trust for Universities of Scotland and the Caledonian Research Foundation.
