At the western end of the amphitheatre of hills referred to in NG51NE 12.13 and 12.14, and part of the same general group of structures, is a longhouse, byre and enclosure. Lying 6.5m N of a large dyke, the longhouse is aligned N-S and measures 11.5m by 3m over walls 1m thick. The enclosure is attached to the W side of the longhouse using its W wall as one side and measures 18.5m by 15.5m internally. To the S and on the other side of the dyke is a grass-covered ruin which may have been a byre.
