There is at least one hut-circle and a scatter of small cairns in heather moorland on the SE side of Druim Drimneach. The hut-circle, which occupies a platform built up on the downslope (SE) side to a height of 1.5m, measures 7.5m in diameter within a stony bank 1.5m in thickness and 0.3m in height. The entrance is on the E. A second platform, immediately to the SW, measures 9m in overall diameter and may mark the site of another hut-circle. There is a group of small cairns about 100m NE of the hut-circles, and another three cairns to the W.
