A 'J'-shaped'line of stones flush with current ground level. Longer stretch of wall is on W side and measures 5.1 m NNW/SSE. This curves to the E at the NNE end for 2.5 m to form the 'J'. The walls are c 0.6 m wide and seem to be two stones wide (turf cover makes it difficult to see). Only one course visible. There are 4 stones forming a rectangle in the central area of the J which may be a hearth or post setting. The E to S walls are not visible.
On high plateau under turf and marram. Overlooks mouth of Kyle of Durness and Balankeil Bay.
