Field Visit (4 November 1997)

NH53SW 73 centred 51334 32543

This hut-circle is situated on a terrace to the S of Creag Ard. It measures 8.5m in diameter within a wall reduced to a heather-grown, stony bank 1.4m in thickness and 0.3m in height. The SW arc of bank has been almost levelled by robbing, but intermittent inner and outer facing-stones are visible around the NE. At least thirteen small cairns, the largest of which measures 4m in diameter and 0.4m in height, and a linear clearance heap, are scattered across the terrace to the S of the hut-circle. Two more cairns lie on a low rise to the WNW of the hut-circle (NH 5125 3262).
