Field Visit (10 August 1994)

NC01SW 1.01 0217 1151 and 0220 1160

The hut-circle (ACHIL94 297, NC 0217 1151) measures 7.2m in diameter within a stony bank spread to 1.6m in thickness and 0.3m in height with an entrance on the SE. There is a small hut built in the N side of the interior. The site of the second hut-circle identified by the OS was located (NC 0220 1160), but it appears to be an irregularly-shaped enclosure on plan, composed of clearance stones with a broad gap on the S, partly filled by clearance.
