The third occupation level of the crannog is constructed on a peat base and was the first major level (Phase Y) encountered when the crannog was excavated. It consists of a large (ME005-088013-) and a small (ME005-088012-) hut, and a furnace. The furnace, contemporary with the large round-house was just to its W. It was a bowl-shaped depression (diam. 0.45m) lined with calcareous mud inside which was ring of charcoal around the bloom. Associated finds included charcoal spreads, a crucible, fragments of moulds and a lead ingot.
