Full Description

This area, as with Western Rhu, is now part of Rhu Farm, with no concentrated settlement but with a scattering of old cultivation and peat digging areas. It was surveyed in 2013 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 18. Possible structure made of tumbled stones against 5 mtr high north facing natural dyke overlooking rigs to rocky shore – a possible rock shelter with a small amount of shell midden material in evidence but could also be for stacking kelp. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
