Abstract


During excavation the inner court as well as two small cells, a staircase, and the greater part of a gallery, all within the thickness of the wall, were cleared out; also, a section of the outer face of the wall on the southern arc, which was obscured by fallen stones, was laid bare. An interesting assortment of relics in stone, pottery, glass, and metal was recovered. These included rotary querns, a stone cup, an iron knife and a glass armlet. A number of items were much later in date and not linked to the main period of occupation of the broch.
