A lithic scatter was found on a grassy level terrace on top of cliffs was found by the Scotland's First Settlers Project in 1999. Three pieces of debitage (two are chalcedonic silica and the third is baked mudstone) and one abraded body sherd of well-fired sandy clay were recovered from the surface of this site. The finds are few in number and undiagnostic. They may relate to prehistoric activity, but further work would be needed to clarify this. <1>
