Full Description

NH68SE 3 666 826

At NH 6662 8265 ('A') is an oval stone-walled hut measuring c.14.5m NW-SE by c.12.5m between the centres of a wall spread to c.3.0m all round. The simple entrance is in the SE.
There is no trace of contemporary cultivation. A complex of straight walls in the vicinity is recent. 45m to the S at NH 6662 8261 is another hut ('B') c.11.5m in diameter with an ill-defined entrance in the SE. A later rectangular building with an entrance in its S wall has been inserted into the hut.
