Two kilns, each reduced to little more than grass-grown hollows, are situated 300m N of Achnagonalin farmsteading, sandwiched between a municipal recycling plant to the N and an industrial estate to the S. The kilns have been set about 3m apart in the SE side of a roughly rectangular flat-topped mound, which measures 13.5m from NE to SW by 8.3m transversely by 1.2m in height. The NW side of the mound has been truncated by a track.
The kilns are not depicted on either the 1st or 2nd edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1874, sheet XXXV; 1903, sheet XXXV). This probably means that they were already out of use by 1874, and they may have been replaced by two larger kilns (NJ02NW 134), the remains of which stand 40m to the NW.
