Full Description

NC82NE 35 8974 2505.

A souterrain was discovered and disturbed during preliminary work on the realignment of the A 897 at Suisgill Bridge. On examination by Barclay it was found to be cruciform on plan, with the entrance to the N, a large chamber to the S, and smaller chambers to the E and W. The finds from the excavation are in Inverness Museum.
G Barclay 1980; G Harden 1985.

The souterrain appears to be intact and unaffected by roadworks, but entry is prevented by a recently positioned drain-cover and concrete surround.
Surveyed at 1:10,000. Visited by OS 30 October 1981.
