There are the footings of two buildings to the NNE of the roofed cottage to the WSW of Achnaveran. The S building measures about 11.8m in length and is heavily robbed while the N building measures 10.2m from NNE to SSW by 3.6m transversely within footings measuring 0.8m in thickness and 0.9m in height; it is of two compartments with an entrance on the E. An enclosure lies to the E.
