Mesolithic site on Skye to be investigated
Archaeologists have described the site as having "huge potential"
Excavations of a Mesolithic site on Skye could give new insights into the lives of some of the island's earliest residents.
Archaeologists believe the location above Staffin Bay has the remains of a house that could be 8,000 years old.
Mesolithic flints have previously been found in an area of eroded grazing land near the site.
Archaeologists will work with Staffin Community Trust and volunteers in making small excavations.
