Field Visit (14 October 2002)

A figure-of-eight hut is set against a crag at the edge of a boggy gulley, about 30m SE of a boundary wall and 20m NE of the Allt na Cuagaich. The main rectangular compartment measures 2.3m from NE to SW by 2.2m transversely within a rubble wall 0.6m in thickness and 0.5m in height. A smaller compartment at the SE is accessed through a lintelled creep and measures 1.5m square.

A boundary wall runs from the hut to the E.
