Crannog (possible), Loch Poit na h-I

This islet is situated about 50 m from the shore at the north end of Loch Poit na h-I, about 200 m south of Achaban House.  It has been identified as a possible crannog because it differs from the other islets in the loch, which consist mostly of natural rock.  This islet is stony and seems to be at least partially man made.  It appears to have been constructed from a mass of rounded granite boulders and is roughly oval in shape, measuring about 13 m by 11 m.  It stands about 1.m above the water.  There is no trace of walling or a timber sub-structure.
