NG5436 : Iron Age souterrain

taken 6 years ago, near to Clachan, Highland, Great Britain

Iron Age souterrain
Iron Age souterrain
A souterrain near Clachan, which was constructed around 2,000 years ago by placing lintel stones across a natural fissure in the rock. Quite what its original purpose was remains an enigma, but this one was used at one time as a store for oars (hence its name Uamh nan Ramh) and more recently, until 1998 when it was cleaned out, was simply used as a rubbish dump.
