Site Description 1. Relict fieldwalls upon the craggy summit of Carnysgubor on the NW of Ramsey Island, possibly focussed on cairn (NPRN: 308813). The fieldwalls consist of a series of curvilinear and linear boundaries which link natural rocky outcrops to enclose small areas of land. Boundaries appear to radiate from the north, east and south sides of the possible cairn (NPRN: 308813) which possibly indicates that the fieldwalls are either contemporary with or of later date to the cairn.
See James & James AW 34 (1994) 52-3.
