Evidence of ancient settlement from 9,000 years ago

During the 1970`s, the naturalist Morton Boyd examined and documented Tiree`s biology and landscape, including some of its archaeological sites. One the north shoulder of Kenavara, he discovered fragments of pottery and bone in a midden that could have been created by Tiree`s first seasonal residents up to 9,000 years ago. The hand-written notes are his.
