NJ01NE 77 05794 18962

A group of at least five hut-circles (centred on NJ 05794 18962) is situated in a birch plantation 200m ESE of Laggandhu. The hut-circles are arranged in two tiers on a SW-facing slope, with two on the upper tier and three on the lower. The huts comprise levelled platforms dug into the slope at the rear to a depth of at least 2m, with well-defined aprons on their front edges. The platforms range in size from 11m to 17m in diameter and the aprons stand up to 1.5m in height. A curved stone revetment, composed of large boulders, defines the front edge of the western platform on the upper tier. An upright stone marks the S side of the entrance on the W side of SE platform on the lower tier. On the date of visit the site was largely obscured with a dense cover of bracken.
