Situated on rough heather moorland about 160m N of the Allt a' Coire Buidhe, there is a group of six subrectangular shieling-huts. They measure from 7.6m by 2.8m to 3.5m by 1.9m within walls up to 0.7m thick and 0.3m in height; five are stone walled, the sixth is turf built. Entrances are visible in the sides of two of the huts.
