The Claigan Souterrain is about a thirty minute walk
from the car park. A Souterrain is a type of underground
structure associated mainly with the Atlantic Iron Age.
Souterrains are underground galleries and, in their
early stages, were always associated with a settlement.
They do not appear to have been used for burial or
ritual purposes and it has been suggested that they were
food stores or hiding places during times of strife.
