The base for a hut is situated about 240m NE of the Cloch Lighthouse. It measures about 7m by 10m and is now being used as a small picnic area. Built of brick and concrete and set into the slope above the shoreline, one metal pipe survives above the platform level.

The hut almost certainly is associated with the Cloch Searchlight Battery.
