Two banked enclosures measuring 12' by 7' internally and resembling the shieling bothies of Sutherland. 'A' is an elliptical enclosure 35' by 16' within a low bank, some 4' wide, outlined by boulders. 'B' is similar to 'A'.
RCAHMS 1912, visited 1911
Two fairly recent enclosures, 'A' and 'B', to the SE of an unnamed burn, and two rectangular shielings, 4.5m by 2.3m to the NW of the burn together with a number of contemporary field clearance heaps. There are no 'cairn circles' or 'rings' to be seen.

Wilson, noting three 'rings' at Klasherne, is presumably referring to this site and/or NX26SW 7.
