This hut-circle is situated in open birch woodland 300m SE of Laintachan farmsteading (NJ01NE 7). It measures 14.2m in diameter within a wall reduced to a grass-grown stony bank up to 3.4m in thickness and standing 0.5m in height on the N. Several inner and outer facing stones are visible, but parts of the wall appear to have been robbed to build the dyke that crosses the interior close to the entrance on the SW. The interior of the hut-circle has been levelled into the slope on the NE.
