Archaeology Notes

NG77SE 6 7869 7312.

NG 7869 7312. Hut circle, 8m diameter, dug into rising ground on N, where wall appears as two separate walls, 2m apart. Three small structures built inside, the largest 4m by 2m is possibly a bothy.

R Wentworth 1989.

This hut-circle was recorded during a pre-afforestation survey of An Torr, Badachro. It is levelled into the slope on the N, where there is evidence of two wall-lines, and measures 8m in diameter. There is no entrance visible. Three small structures, the largest of which measures 4m by 2m and is possibly a bothy, have been built within the hut-circle.
