|Description ||stones showing clearly from left of shore
16m E-W by 18m, most of it is grass-covered but (at least now) higher up is bare and there are some stones on its top. Even with binoculars there is no definite shape to them. It is probably a settlement mound and there is apparently suggestion of a level platform to the south. You cannot get to the site from the coast owing to a very taut barbwire fence along the coastline. A better bet is probably the farmtrack to Ness of Campston.
RCAHMS NMRS record no. HY50SW 21 has now the results of geophysics to the south and west in 2001. Numerous anomalies indicate an extensive site, along with an arc of of ditch about 55m diameter and 6~8m wide with a break at the SE. As a result it is thought this could be a broch-type settlement.
