Dun, Loch Shiabhat, Isle of Lewis
The dun is described at LinkExternal link as, "completely artificial, being built upon the floor of the loch which is about 5ft deep at this point. It consists of a sub-circular drystone wall with a slight batter, about 11.0m NW-SE by 10.0m transversely, rising to 0.6m above the water level in the NE, and completely submerged in the SW, to the depth of about a foot. The outer wall face can be seen throughout the circumference but there is no sign of the inner wall face.
