In the main description, NS4279 : Remains of a longhouse, the short wall at the eastern end can be seen on the left. The present photograph is a view along the length of the structure from just outside of that eastern wall, which fills the width of the lower half of the image.

Compare NS4279 : Ruins of longhouse, a similar view taken earlier, on a cloudier day.
Remains of a longhouse
See LinkExternal link (at WoSAS) for a description of these remains, which are described there as being those of "a dry-stone built longhouse". Roy's Military Survey of Scotland (c.1740s-50s) shows, near here, a structure whose name is difficult to read, but which is perhaps something like "Black lws" or "Black hws".
