OS 1:10,000 map, (1970)

On the NE side of Loch Lundie (Loch Lunndaich) near its E extremity are two hut circles, 40 yards apart. A number of mounds occur close by.
The two huts ('A' and 'B') noted by RCAHMS (1911). Hut dimensions are between centres of walls mainly overgrown by peat.
'A' is 12.0m N-S by 10.5m. A depression in the S arc probably indicates an entrance gap. Round the SW quadrant the wall coursing has been partly exposed by rabbit burrowing.
'B' is 10.0m NNW-SSE by 9.0m and has an entrance gap in the SSE. Contemporary cultivation is marked by one or two stone clearance heaps along slope to the SE.
Revised at 1:10 000.
RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909; Visited by OS (R D L) 15 April 1964 and (J M) 7 August 1975.
