(Area NC 587 336) A hut circle is situated at the E end of a ridge, about 1/2 mile S of Klibreck farmhouse. It is oval, measuring 28ft by 36ft within a bank of turf and stone, about 8ft across and 1 1/2 to 2ft high, with an entrance in the SE. Placed around the hut circle in its immediate vicinity are some ten or twelve small round mounds of earth and stone, covered with vegetation, each about 15ft in diameter and 2ft in height.
