(NC 7909 0068) Hut Circle (NR)

OS 1:10,000 map, (1970)

On the NE side of Loch Lundie, (Loch Lunndaich) and some three hundred yards along from its E extremity, is a hut circle, now ill-defined. Near it and on the hillside above are seven or eight mounds.

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909.

The hut circle noted by RCAHMS (1911) is 12.0m in diameter between centres of a heather overgrown wall. An entrance gap is not evident. Contemporary cultivation is marked by several stone clearance heaps on the hill slope to the NE.

Visited by OS (R D L) 15 April 1964 and (J M) 7 August 1975.
