Full Description

Three regular flakes, two of quartz and one of chalcedonic silica, were found in a molehill just outside and beside the boundary wall to Clachan Church, Applecross, during the Scotland's First Settlers Project in 2000. Finds like this are hard to interpret but they suggest prehistoric activity in the vicinity and this is supported by other nearby evidence such as SFS 75, Applecross Manse (see MHG37293). <1>
