Full Description

Close to a rock outcrop at the S end of the bay, some 160m to the SSE of the farmstead (1.1), there are two boat nausts (NG 8536 0546 and NG 8537 0545), which are both fine examples of their type, and the wasted remains of a building. The nausts have been cut back into the slope to the rear of the foreshore and measure respectively 4.5m by 2m and 3.3m by 1.5m internally, by up to 1.3m in depth. The sides of that on the N have been consolidated with masonry. Terraced into the slope at the foot of the rock outcrop, directly to the rear of the S naust, there are the remains of a small rectangular building (perhaps a net store), measuring 4.6m from WNW to ESE by 3m transversely overall, with an entrance in its ESE end-wall.
