Full Description

A 'chiste Dhubh
Site identified during an archaeological survey by NOSAS in 2006.

Site 834 - Pen. A small square structure, measuring 1m x 1m internally, crudely built against the stone wall, Site 833. The walls of the structure stand to c 1m high at the back and 0.6 high at the front, with 2 obvious vents in the walls, suggesting it might have had a roof at one time and been used as a lambing pen. <1>

Note; Site not visible on APs so location approximate. (T Blackie 11/6/18)
