A walkover survey in September 2009 revealed no trace of a hut circle at this grid reference, only an area of heather. There was no evidence for clearance cairns in the vicinity, with a few mounds visible but no stone located. Northing in the area looked like a hut circle. A subsequent walkover survey in March 2010 again revealed no archaeological features at this location. <1>

It is believed that this feature is present at this location and recommendations have been made for avoidance during the planting scheme. <2>
