This sub-circular enclosed settlement measures 65m by 50m and
0.3 ha, and lies on a moderate, well drained, clitter free,
southwest facing slope at 350m above OD. The wall, 2.5m wide,
is double faced and constructed of large boulders, now turf
covered and in fair condition. There is a probable entrance
at the east angle; it is 1.3m wide and marked by transverse
orthostats. Two terraced Type 2 hut circles, average internal
diameter 6.8m with walling 1.2m wide, are built on the line of
the enclosure wall. Both are in very poor condition, one being
mutilated by the construction of a modern shelter upon it.
