Full Description

RCAHMS Canmore description:
During two short field seasons (October 2008, April 2009) a coastal survey was undertaken to identify new shell middens and coastal sites, and samples were taken on several shell middens for radiocarbon dating. The survey and sampling focused on three main areas:
Raasay East Coast (Fairy Glen), where a small number of middens had been previously identified, notably Druim An Aonaich (NG54SE 17). We recorded 21 caves or rock shelters, 8 of which contained shell middens. All were in the area of NG 585 428. <1>
