Full Description

There are what may be four hut-circles scattered amongst the core of Little Rogart township (NC70SW 106.04); two of them are partly destroyed by this later activity (ROG95 876, 878, NC 7329 0349 and NC 7321 0342) and survive as incomplete arcs of stone. The hut-circles range from 5.6m to 8.3m in diameter within stone-faced banks 1.3m to 1.8m in thickness. Two of the huts are levelled into the slope (ROG95 874, 876), and two display what are likely to be entrances on the SE (ROG95 854, 874, NC 7317 0334 and NC 7336 and NC 7336 0343).
