The huts, which are dispersed over 110 metres above and below the 36 5 metre OD contour, are small, and comprise turf-covered flattish mounds, or circles of approximately 7 metres diameter and up to 0.3 metres high. Very little stone is visible above the turf, with the exception of one hut, which has a measurable diameter of approximately 4 metres.
