Summary : Bronze Age hut circle with double walling 1.3 metres thick and 0.4 metres high. It has an internal diameter of 3.6 metres and the interior is partly filled with clearance stone. The entrance was probably to the south west where there is a prone slab. Scheduled and in guardianship.
More information : At SX 55277514 there is a hut circle of Type 2
(SX 56 NE 19), with double walling 1.3m. thick and 0.4m. high.
It has an internal diameter of 3.6m. and the interior is partly
filled with clearance stone. The entrance was probably to the
SW where there is a prone slab. Although there are patches of
clear ground in the vicinity it is uncertain whether they
have resulted from prehistoric or later clearance, and some
stone may have been collected for the nearby reave. (SX 59 NE 53)
which makes an angular turn by the hut. This, hovever, is not
necessarily attributable to the presence of the hut since the
reave follows the edge of a relatively stony area.

Found during field work and surveyed at 1:10 000 on MSD and at
1:2500, (See SX 56 NE 104). (1)
