This limekiln has been built into a gentle SSE-facing slope in what is now heather and grass moorland some 300m NW of Coldhome farmstead (NH92NE 40). Roughly oval on plan but with a straight S side which stands to a height of 1.2m, it measures 8m from N to S by 5m transversely over collapsed rubble walls. The kiln-pot, which is faced with granite blocks, is choked with rubble. It measures about 2m in internal diameter by at least 0.7m in depth and there is a draw-hole in the centre of the S side.
