Eilean Duirinnis

Loch Etive (West)

Penisula at Bonawe

Ferry Island - a ferry ran to connect this part of Ardchattan with Taynuilt.


Exactly opposite Bunawe, near the houses belonging to the Duranish quarry, is a point called Euagh nan Draighean, said to mean Thorn Point. On this are some very ruinous remains near the shore; the later remains further up are not meant. The remains, as they are called in the chart, are apparently of irregular bothies, some naturally placed stones
doing duty, and'some of the walls being curved, others straight. These have been dwellings, but we can scarcely say how rude at this time; we know that stones may somewhat change their places where soil and vegetation and heavy rains are, not to speak of the inclination of the hilly ground.1
