Full Description

Rubha Camas Na Cailinn
Sites identified during an archaeological survey by NOSAS in 2006.

Site 837. A constructed path, well built originally, now overgrown and wasted in places by the action of the sea. The buildings at Rubha Camas na Cailinn appear to have been robbed to build the path. Particularly at the A’Chiste Dhubh end, the path negotiates rock slabs and rocky points in an impressive manner. Construction stops at A’Chiste Dhubh, but on the 1st edition OS the path is shown as continuing to Caolasmor. The path can still be followed to Caolasmor, but it is unmade and tricky to find in places. <1>
