This is possibly the best preserved example of a wheelhouse on North Uist and is not shown on the OS maps. Difficult to find, it is located between Loch Hornary and the north coast of Grimsay. It dates from the Iron Age. © Copyright Bob Jones and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence.
