Full Description

Smaller hut circle, with an internal diameter of only 4m is set on the E edge of higher ground. It is covered in bracken and grass and to its N is all heather. There is stone visible in its walls, which are generally grass and moss covered, standing only 0.3m high and spread to 1.5m wide. There is a possible 0.6m wide entrance at its rear to 2470. This building was probably used for storage. <1>
