NM48NE 10 4648 8722.

A circular stone-walled hut at NM 4648 8722 measuring 11.5m between the centres of a turf-and- bracken-covered wall spread to 3.0m. The entrance is in the E. Several large areas of lazybed cultivation lie to the N, but there is no evidence of any cultivation contemporary with the hut. Surveyed at 1/10,000 and 1/2500.

Field Visit (16 October 2002)

On the leading edge of a terrace overlooking the head of a gully, to the SW of a tributary of Abhainn Gleann Charadail, there is a hut-circle covered in bracken that measures 8.8m in diameter within a stony bank measuring 2.5m in thickness and 0.2m in height. The rear of the hut-circle is little more than a scarp dug into the slope.
