Archaeology of Pabay Banner


The Island of Pabay has been a home and refuge for humans throughout the ages.

Scotland's First Settlers is a project set up to examine the early post glacial human occupation of the area around the Inner Sound, from northern Skye to Redpoint, Torridan. During this period of time, from around 9500 - 5000 before the present, Scotland was home to nomadic hunter gatherers who had no permanent buildings. Their sites are often indicated initially by nothing more than a scatter of stone tools, however more substantial sites can be found in the form of large shell middens, often inside caves or rockshelters. As part of the Scotland's First Settlers project, the coastline of Pabay has been surveyed and two sites have been found.
