Full Description

A hut circle is visible on aerial photography of the west of Armadale woods. <1>

This hut circle was noted by WCAS during a 2011 DBA and walkover survey in advance of a woodland creation scheme. It was very degraded, located on a SE-facing slope under heather, grass and gorse. It measured 10m N-S by 9m over walls spread to 1.5-2.0m at the base and survived to 0.5m high. There was no visible entrance. <2>
