"The houses became visible as shapes made out of stones, all in different formations, with some 14 examples scattered over a one kilometre stretch of sand.

The settlement appears to have been sealed beneath the massive sand dunes that characterise the approach to Tresness but which are eroding beneath the dune complex."

"The UHI spokesman added: “It was the scale and density of occupation that really surprised the archaeologists as they proceeded along the ness. Not only are house structures present but working areas are also visible.”
