(NC 9207 2019) Hut Circle (NR) (site of)

OS 6"map, (1963)

East of the Allt Halligarry, and some sixty yards above the road, is the site of a hut-circle, visible only as a platform about 12.0m diameter.

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909; Visited by OS (W D J) 3 June 1961

This is a hut-circle levelled out of the slope in the bottom reaches of a steep SW-facing hillside. There are no signs of associated agriculture. The hut remains as a platform, about 13.0m NW-SE by 10.5m, having vestiges of a wall on the rim; an entrance is no longer evident.

Revised at 1/10,000.

Visited by OS (J M) 7 December 1976
