This Hebridean Passage Grave sits on a small tidal islet. In the neolithic the three islands were one landmass and the watery landscape which characterises the Uists today did not come into effect until about 2000 bce.

Traces of the passage and chamber on the islet with several peristaliths visible at tide level.

Access. Parking ok on the approach road. Through one gate then over a tricky barbed wire fence to the shore.
