Full Description

This possible hut circle (ROG95 854) was identified by RCAHMS during their survey of the Rogart area in 1995. It has a maximum internal diameter of 6m with a faced bank standing. 1.3m in width, standing to a height of 0.2m. The hut circle occupies a low knoll. A gap in the north arc may be an entrance but there is another gap in the south east with rubble outside, suggesting that in the north may be due to damage. <1><2>
