Circular enclosure associated with a stone hut circle. Interior measures 35 metres in diameter and is defined by a 1.7 metre wide and 0.7 metre high partly faced rubble wall. Gap in the southern circuit may represent an original entrance. Hut circle attached to the boundary wall on the western side of the entrance gap and survives as a 5.5 metre diameter ring of stones protruding through the turf.
The enclosure is recorded in 1985 as being cut by a post-medieval leat, this leat however passes some 20 metres to the west.
