Cnoc Dubh


I've not visited this site, but it seems to be a contentious one, thought by some to be the remains of a stone circle. Here is a quote taken from CANMORE describing the site:
What may be three unroofed shieling-huts and one enclosure are depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Island of Lewis, Ross-shire 1853, sheet 25). This site lies within a system of head-dykes associated with the township NB23SW 49. Three unroofed buildings which may be shieling-huts, one sheep pen and one sheep dip are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1973).

Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 29 September 1997.
Apparantly the name Cnoc Dubh means black hillock in Gaelic.
