This heather-grown rectangular hut is situated on the SW end of a ridge, the greater part of which has been afforested. The hut measures 2.8m from NW to SE by 2m within boulder footings and there is an entrance in the NW end. A rectangular enclosure measuring 7.3m from NW to SE by 5.3m internally lies along the NE side of the hut.
