Field Visit (3 March 1993)

NH62NW 58 6390 2703.

This hut-circle is situated on a terrace, strewn with field clearance, above the W bank of the River Nairn, 300m WSW of Dalriach farmhouse. It measures 8.5m in diameter within a stony bank 0.3m in height and spread to 1.8m in thickness. The entrance is on the SE.

A track runs E-W through the centre of the hut and stones have been dumped on the wall and within the interior. There are some small cairns to the S, which may be contemporary with the hut.
