Field Visit (6 January 1972)

NH62NW 17 6362 2700.

At NH 6362 2700, on the brink of a SW-facing slope and separated from NH62NW 16 by boggy ground is an oval stone-walled hut measuring c. 12.0m from the NNW through the ill-defined entrance in the ESE by c. 10.5m transversely between the centres of a wall spread to c. 3.0m all round. Immediately SW of the entrance are four outer facing stones.

In the vicinity are a few stone clearance heaps, probably from contemporary cultivation plots.

Surveyed at 1/10,000 and 25" scale.

This hut-circle stands in heather on the leading edge of a terrace overlooking boggy ground on the W bank of the River Nairn. It measures 8.5m in diameter within a stony bank spread to 1.6m in thickness and standing 0.3m high. The hut is set into sloping ground on the NE.

Outer facing-stones are visible to the SW of the entrance, which is on the SE, and the wall thickens here to 3.5m.
