This shieling-hut is situated immediately WNW of a stone-walled enclosure on the W bank of Allt Coire an Laoigh. It comprises a sub-rectangular hut, with an outshot at its ESE end, overlying a large earthen mound. The hut measures 6.9m by 3.9m over stone walls about 0.9m thick by 0.6m high internally, and the outshot measures 5.1m in overall length. The underlying mound is about 13.5m in diameter by 1m in height. What may be the remains of another hut are overlain by the NW angle of the enclosure to the ESE. There are traces of subsidiary enclosures amongst the outcrops and boulders to the S of the enclosure, and there is also a pen built against a rock outcrop on the E side of the burn some 20m to the NE.
