Full Description

NMRS Report: (26/04/2004)
NH33SE 39 3935 3057

A hut-circle and a bank are situated in juniper and birch scrub about 700m SSE of Upperton Farm. The hut-circle measures 9.5m in diameter within a stony bank spread to 2.5m in thickness and 0.4m in height. The bank, which also forms a lynchet to the SSW of the hut-circle, runs roughly along the contour from ESE to WNW for a distance of 80m.

Visited by RCAHMS (PJD) 21 October 1997 <1>

The hut circle was visited in February 2012 and marked out with a 10m buffer zone prior to overhead line works. The hut circle has become difficult to identify because of trees growing out of the bank. No evidence was seen of a continuous lynchet, although there are several small grass-covered cairns. Possibly the lynchet has become segmented by animal erosion. <2>
