Full Description

A 'C'-shaped line of walling defined by quartzite blocks, 4.7 m ENE/WSW x 2.8 m. Only one course survives. There is one orthostat in the wall line and the other stones are a mix of large angular blocks and smaller rubble. The walls are spread up to 1 m wide on the long axis of the C but are only 1 stone wide on the short arms. Most of the stone on the short arms is flush with turf but the long wall is more visible/upstanding.
On high, grassy plateau in highest part of headland, with some burrows in vicinity.
Partly robbed out structure.
