Crannog, Loch Ba

Crannog, Loch Bà

This is a small, unnamed island situated about 450 m south-east of Gruline House at the north-west end of Loch Bà.  It appears to consist entirely of loose boulders and was probably man made.  It was measured in 1973, when the water level was very low, as being 12 m wide and standing 1.2 m above the water level.  It was probably an inhabited stronghold and is assumed to have been included in the lands of Knock, part od the MacLean of Duart estate since the 14th century.
