Archeological sites in the Hebrides

Which are the best archeological sites to vist in the Hebrides? I've got a great book but reading it gives me the impression that most sites have been re-buried. Any advice on what not to miss?

There are so many it's hard to know where to start! Lewis is a good place - as well as the famous stone circle at Callanish, there is a well-preserved broch (Dun Carloway), and there are black houses, Iron Age houses, and many other remains. Have a look at this site, though it only covers the Outer Hebrides, I think: http://www.archaeologyhebrides.com/

Islay has some interesting sites worth visiting. As does Lismore.

Not sure whether you're aiming at inner or outer Hebrides. Or whether your interest extends to the general west of Scotland; but perhaps you've already visited Kilmartin and other significant mainland sites.
