The walk slowly descends towards the bay and soon you will come across huge stones which are the remains of a chambered burial place, about 6,000 years old.

A little bit further on towards the beach is a small walled enclosure said to be the burial place of the Campbell family's catholic members. In front of the enclosure is a bronze age standing stone. The sea facing edge reveals two well worn engravings: a celtic cross and a dog.

Once on the beach, head west along the shoreline. The path rises into the banked remains of an ironage promontory fort (3000 years old).
