Hut circle complex in south-east sector of enclosure. Enclosure wall seems to kink out to include the hut circle. The central component appears to be one sub-circular structure represented by stone rubble and some large orthostats. Two upright stones, 0.60 metres apart, in southern sector may indicate an entrance. The hut circle is linked to the enclosure wall by a series of grass-covered banks in which a few small stones are visible. Two of these flank the entrance, while a third curves round from the west sector of the hut circle enclosing an area 5.30 metres by 2.70 metres which may represent a second hut circle. Dimensions 4 metres by 3 metres internally; 8.2 metres by 7 metres externally with orthostats up to 0.95 metres high.
