Full Description

The remains of a prehistoric hut circle were noted during a walkover survey by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2012 at Coireag Mhor, Bracadale, Skye, prior to a proposed woodland creation scheme. The boulderbuilt but very degraded remains measured 10m NE-SW by 8.5m and were partially buried by peat and lay under the site of a post-medieval shieling (feature 27a). The large boulders were set on edge with a possible robbed-out entrance to the east-south-east. <1>
