('A' NC 8162 0987: 'B' NC 8164 0991) Hut Circles (NR).

On the W side of Scottarie Burn, 1/2 mile from Kilbraur, is a hut circle ('A').

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909.

'A' is 11.5m in diameter between the centres of a wall 1.6m thick widening to 2.7m at the entrance in the E. Inner facing stones occur intermittently around the whole periphery.

The vague outline of 'B' occurs on a low knoll. It measures about 7.0m in diameter; a gap in the E is probably an entrance. A few stone clearance heaps occur in the vicinity.
