Full Description

A possible hut circle at Cnoc Na H-Iolaire, Lochbroom.

217777 888916 PN003 Ardcharnich 3 Cnoc na H-Ighine: The possible hut circle was visited by P Newling in 2010 as part of research for a dissertation on hut circles in Wester Ross for A Welti. This was part of a degree course overseen by Aberdeen University. It is in poor condition. It is located on the slope some 300m to the SE of PN001 (see MHG7844) and a little above. The site was revisited in 2019 by A Welti, S Mackenzie and I Brandt. The platform seems revetted into the slope and a large slab, possibly an inner facing stone, is visible. <1> <2>

[Note: a database was set up as part of research for the dissertation and was subsequently expanded as an extension of the We Digs Project (see website link below). The full access database can be made available to enquirers/researchers if requested - contact HER for details].
