On the north side of Loch Coire nam Feuran, at the top of the bank which rises from the shore, are several small round mounds presenting no particular features of interest, and the remains of a hut circle.

This is a poorly preserved hut circle within an enclosed area containing run-rig agriculture. Associated cultivation is denoted nearby in sporadic mounds of field clearance. The hut is 12.5m diameter inside a turf-covered fragmentary wall, partially overlaid by later walling. The entrance is no longer evident.
