Remains of a longhouse
Remains of a longhouse
See NS4279 : Remains of a longhouse for the main description.

Of the two long walls of the building, the northern one enters the photograph near the lower-left corner, and recedes along the direction of view. The southern wall enters the photograph about halfway up the right-hand edge.

The remains of some of the cross-walls of the structure can be seen connecting the two long walls, like the rungs of a ladder.
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".
