These sites were recorded by NOSAS in 2004 as part of an archaeological survey of Inner Loch Hourn. A small settlement in a bay sheltered between two steep headlands, Creag Raonabhal to the west and the base of Sgurr Sgiath Airigh to the east. It is easily reached by sea but there is a steep ascent and decent from both sides on the public footpath. It would appear from the 19th century historical evidence to be something of a satellite settlement for Skiary and the three or four upstanding structures here bear similarity to those at Skiary, although there is evidence of earlier structures and one if not two possible sheilings. There is no evidence of any cultivation remains in the form of rigs. The place is dominated by two destructive burns.
Site 495. The foundations of 2 rectangular buildings or enclosures. The first structure measures 6.1m x 4.4m with double faced wall varying in ht from 0.3m to 0.1m. The second structure measures 5.2m x 3.2m with similar wall heights. No entrances visible in either structure. Sited on gently sloping N facing waterlogged ground on Creag Raonabhal. <1>
