Small sub-circular hut circle 2.5 metres by 3 metres internally and 8.8 metres by 6.7 metres externally with walls 0.3 metres high is incorporated into the western sector of the enclosure wall. The numerous small stoned visible in the sparse vegetation suggest use as a clearance cairn. A small heap of stones 4 metres in diameter lies to the north. Two orthostats in the north-east sector are possibly misplaced facing slabs. A gap to the east may indicate an entrance.
