This stone-walled hut circle and an associated minor field system are situated on a sheltered W-facing slope. The field system is marked by a dozen or so stone clearance mounds in the immediate vicinity of the hut; measurable cultivation plots are not discernible.

The hut is about 11.0m N-S by 10.0m internally; the wall, turf-covered and standing on average to 0.4m, is 1.3m thick, widening at an entrance from the S to a spread of 2.5m. There has been disturbance in the interior in the WSW quarter.
