Structure on Beddies - 1995

This structure, composed of some wooden piling and hewn sandstone block was seen by Susan during the 'lowest tide I've ever seen'. It is directly offshore from Stornoway House, and is roughly circular, about 20 feet in diameter. The point of the Sutor can be seen at the top of the picture.

Anyone have any ideas?

Maybe it was a ship wrecked there - the wood could be the sides of the ship.

I'm fairly sure this is part of a fish trap. You can see it running out from the shore in Clark's print of Cromarty in the 1820s - photo No 441
