Abstract


This chapter presents details of location, physical description of the stack, extent of erosion, method of access and previous work. There are no obvious structures on the stack, but archaeological deposits were visible in a series of eroding scars. These scars were scattered through many little ramps and terraces on the steepest landward face. Close examination showed the terraces to be supported by walls and revetments often running along the contours of the stack and making use of natural outcrops. A total of 48 sherds including decorated Neolithic examples were recovered along with 5 stone tools, butchered bone and charcoal. A trial excavation is described elsewhere in this report.
