Full Description

On level, slightly raised platform, moss-covered banks define a hut circle, measuring internally 7m in diameter, with a possible entrance to the SSE. Mature trees are growing on the banks and in the interior, but the site has not been ploughed so was presumably a visible feature when the trees were planted in 1952. The site has previously been noted by members of NOSAS. <1>
