CcCp-7, Sutherland: This is a large midden/habitation site with cultural material scattered over a 4-6 hectare field. At the shoreline edge a narrow strip ca. 1-2 m wide remains relatively undisturbed. The presence of ceramic material in the deposit reflects a late prehistoric Maritime Woodland occupation. The extent of this site and associated large assemblage of diagnostic cultural material make this an important site for the region.
