The stone footings of this still are situated at the foot of a mature Scots Pine in a shallow gully draining into the N side of Loch nam Bat. It is subrectangular on plan and measures 5.9m from NE to SW by 2.7m transversely within a faced rubble wall 0.9m in thickness and 0.8m in height. There are two entrances on the SE. A stone platform occupies the NE end of the interior, and the NW wall incorporates a recess measuring 2.2m in depth by 1.5m in breadth. There is a local tradition that this was a still (information from Mr Younie, Garbeg).
