Full Description

A kiln has been built into the SW segment of the broch (ND12SW 4.00), and other structures of a depopulated settlement are adjacent to the site.
Visited by OS (J L D) 15 June 1960.

What may be a farmstead comprising one unroofed L-shaped structure is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Caithness 1877, sheet xlii). On the current edition of the OS 1:10560 map (1964), the L-shaped structure is shown conjoined to a smaller unroofed structure which is attached to the SW of the broch (ND12SW 4.00). This smaller structure may be the kiln referred to by the OS.
Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 23 November 1995.
