A rectangular drystone building was recorded here during a field survey of the Suisnish area of Raasay by ACFA, who have conducted surveys on the island every year since 1995. It measures 4.2m x 3.2m and has walls around 0.5m thick. The building is between 2m and 2.5m in height and has a flat roof of corrugated iron. The SW wall has a door 0.8m wide and 1.5m high. The building is currently used to store hay. An area near to the building has been paved and there is an enclosure, 27m x 7m, bounded by stone and turf banks.
