Archaeology Notes

NH68SE 3 666 826

At NH 6662 8265 ('A') is an oval stone-walled hut measuring c.14.5m NW-SE by c.12.5m between the centres of a wall spread to c.3.0m all round. The simple entrance is in the SE.

There is no trace of contemporary cultivation. A complex of straight walls in the vicinity is recent. 45m to the S at NH 6662 8261 is another hut ('B') c.11.5m in diameter with an ill-defined entrance in the SE. A later rectangular building with an entrance in its S wall has been inserted into the hut.

Huts surveyed at 1:10,560.

Visited by OS (A A) 25 September 1973.

These two hut circles stand 750m NW of Polintark in an area disturbed by peat-cutting.

RCAHMS 1979, visited September 1978.
