This hut-circle is situated on the crest of a ridge to the SW of Dunlichity and is crossed by a fence on the E. It measures 14.5m from NNE to SSW by 12m transversely within a stony bank spread to 2.7m in thickness and 0.5m in height. A low, stony bank runs off to the SW where there is also a cairn measuring about 3m in diameter.

On a separate ridge some 120m to the W (NH 6575 3273) there are three small cairns measuring about 4m in diameter and 0.3m in height.
