NC50SE 1 560 030.
Some 180 yards SW of cairn (NC50SE 23), is a hut circle, with the entrance in SE, measuring internally 31 x 37ft. The faces of the enclosing bank are well marked with boulders, laid end to end, and the bank appears to have been from 8 to 10ft across.
About 100 yards SE of the hut are three mounds, 18 to 20ft in diameter, and 2 to 3ft high.
RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909.
The hut circle and mounds could not be located in an area ploughed and re-afforested; though the hut may be NC50SE 5, which could not, however, be certainly identified with this site.
