MHG57908 - Field wall, Camas Ban
Field wall, Camas Ban
Type and Period (1)
- WALL (Post Medieval - 1560 AD? to 1900 AD?)
- None recorded
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 501. A field wall runs NE from the Lochournhead to Barrisdale track E of the Allt a Chamuis Bhain at NG91800675 to the shore at NG91850685. The wall is dry stone, up to 1.0m high and 1.0 to 1.5 m thick at base, 0.7m wide at the top. <1>
