OS 25" map, (1967)

On the edge of a field are the remains of two stone-walled huts, termed circular enclosures, probably folds, by the RCAHMS (1911).

The E hut, destroyed in the SW, measuring c.16.0m NW-SE between wall centres. Occasional inner and outer facing stones are visible, giving a wall thickness of 2.3m. No entrance is apparent.

The W hut, destroyed in the W by a road, measures 11.9m internally N-S. The inner face is visible intermittently but the only outer facing stone to be seen is in the S, where the wall is 2.0m thick. No entrance is apparent.

There is no trace of an associated field system in the area, which is under modern cultivation.

Surveyed at 1:2500.
