Full Description

7m internal diameter hut circle, set on the SW edge of a break of slope below and largely overgrown by bracken (Plates 3 & 4). The heather-covered downslope arc is the most prominent, standing up to 0.6m high and being spread to 2m wide and there is stone visible in its construction here too. There is a possible entrance to 110 degrees. It is difficult to recognise with its vegetation cover and limited structural remains. A number of other possible bronze Age/Iron Age features were recorded during walkover survey in Strath Lunndaidh. <1>
