Full Description

The remains of a possible hut circle or lambing pen originally surveyed by Historic Assynt at Eader a' Chalda. One of three features (O-P) recorded close together (see also MHG53734 and MHG60897).

Feature P lies SE of O (see MHG53734) and consists of what might be a small curving section of wall with a possible outer face, although the feature is very insubstantial. If the circuit suggested by the possible wall is completed it is almost exactly the same size as O, but it may never have been a built structure. <1>
