Full Description

On a terrace above the Abhainn Sgitheach is a hut circle 6m diameter within a wall 0.1m high. It is so overgrown with peat and heather that only two or three stones can be seen and position of entrance cannot be determined. Nearby are two disturbed mounds probably field clearance heaps.
The terrace upon which the huts stand is relatively stone free indicating possible contemporary cultivation.
