Full Description

Hut circle set on the N side of the post clearance field dyke, with its N arc recessed into the hill slope. It is slightly oval, measuring 11m x 9m (its long axis is parallel to the contours, ie W-E), and its moss, bracken and heather-covered walls are spread to 2m wide and stand 0.7m high, although its S arc is largely missing, probably having been robbed for construction of the nearby later dyke. <1>
