In the area centred at NG 818 781 between 300 and 375 ft OD., on the sheltered southern slope of a hill, there are the heather covered remains of three hut circles and several greatly mutilated enclosures. The enclosures which are now barely visible have been constructed with large boulders and a hut circle falls on the perimeter of one of them. The hut circles, which all have 1.0 metre wide entrances in their SE peripheries, are constructed of large stone, forming an inner and outer kerb with small stone infilling, and their dimensions are as follows;- 'A' - Internally 7.0m in diameter with walls 0.5m high by 2.0m thick. 'B' - Internally 7.5m in diameter with walls 0.5m high by 1.0, thick. 'C' - Internally 6.5m in diameter with walls 0.5m high by 1.5m thick.
