This rectangular building stands on gently-sloping ground on the E side of a small valley, opposite Blarbuie farmhouse. Aligned ENE-WSW across the contours, it measures 10.4m in length by 3.5m in breadth within walls which have largely been reduced to a heather-covered stony bank spread to 1.6m in thickness and standing up to 0.3m in height.
