Full Description

A hut circle at Cnoc Craggie Beag, Glen Loth.

A sub-rectangular enclosure 6m by 6m within a peat-obscured stone wall 1.5m wide. The entrance is in the E. There are some loose stones within the enclosure.
Visited by OS (JB) 19 October 1976.

Analysis of this feature as shown on vertical APs dating to 2009 would suggest that this is probably a hut circle rather than just an enclosure. <1>

GIS spatial data amended in 2020 according to location as seen on 2009 vertical APs.
