(SX 5849 6458) Two stone hut circles situated immediately south of an agglomerate enclosure. Terraced into the hillslope. Conjoined plan and rubble bank walling type. Interior of the southern building is oval in shape, measures 3 metres by 2.5 metres and is defined by a 1.1 metre wide wall standing up to 0.4 metres high. Interior of northern structure is also oval, measures 3.5 metres by 2 metres and is surrounded by a 1.6 metre wide wall standing up to 0.4 metres high. An east-south-east facing gap in the wall surrounding the northern building may represent an original doorway.

SX58506459. A sub-rectangular structure measuring 3.3 metres north to south by 1.6 metres with walls 1.4 metres wide and 0.6 metres high. An entrance is positioned in the north-eastern corner and a small annex 2.6 metres north-south by 3.5 metres adjoins the southern end.
The form of these structures suggests two phases/periods of occupation, the sub-rectangular buildings following and perhaps reoccupying the sites of the more conventional hut circles.
