Easily seen on the walk up to Steinacleit stone circle.

The causeway is visible but appeared to be slightly under water.

I watched as a man tried to tip toe his way across – he gave up.
I am sure if he had wellies on he would have been fine!

A modern cairn has been built in the middle of the site.

One of the many sites around Steinacleit. You can't help but notice this, sitting on the loch.

Besides the obvious causeway, other remains include several traces of walls, and possible evidence of the existance of earlier crannogs in the loch.
