This building is situated on a terrace at the base of the Coire Buidhe and measures 9.1m from N to S by 3.7m transversely within faced-rubble footings 0.7m in thickness and 0.7m in height. The entrance is on the S side, and there is a bedneuk at the S end of the E wall. Fragments of walling to the NW may be the remains of an enclosure and what may be the ruins of a second building lie some 5m to the N.
The building is shown as roofed on the 1st edition of the OS map (Inverness-shire 1875, sheet xxxi), and is also depicted on a plan of Drumbuie and Dalcrombie by H Morrison dated 1849 (SRO: RHP 2189).
