Full Description

NC14NE 3 1613 4545.

At NC 1613 4545, on a slight rise on a S-facing hillside, are the wasted remains of a hut circle. It measures about 11.5 m in diameter over a wall generally reduced to a fragmentary spread of turf-covered rubble; an earthfast slab in the NE may be an outer facing stone in situ. No entrance is evident.
The near vicinity of the hut is stone-free in an otherwise boulder-strewn area; this is the only indication of associated land-use. Surveyed at 1:10,000.
Visited by OS (J M) 14 May 1980.
