Hut Circle, Eriboll: About 1 mile SW of Eireboll farm and 150 yds W of the road is a hut circle of the ordinary type.
RCAHMS 1911.

This well-defined hut circle is situated in a prominent position on top of a low spur. It measures 9.0m E-W by 8.0m within a wall generally constructed of large stones and slabs with occasional facing stones visible. The wall is spread to 2.0m wide and 0.5m high. The position of the entrance, although not certain, appears to have been in the E.
There is no trace of contemporary cultivation in the vicinity; the ground is blanketed by peat.
