Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. An uneven rubble circular wall which may have been used as a gun butt. Thought by previous surveyors to be a modified cairn or possibly a modified kiln. It is 2.5m by 2m and 1.2m high, aligned NW/SE and is dug into the edge of a grassy mound. The walls are 0.4m thick and there is an area of collapse which may have been an entrance on the west side. <2>
