On edge of a field are the remains of two stone-walled huts, termed circular enclosures, probably folds, by RCAHMS (1911).

The W hut, destroyed in W by a road, measures 11.9m internally N-S. The inner face is visible intermittently but the only outer facing stone to be seen is in S, where wall is 2m thick. No entrance is apparent. There is no trace of an associated field system in the area, which is under modern cultivation.
