Hut 11 is roughly circular and measures 4.0 -5.0 meters in diameter; with walls 0.3 meters high; having been considerably reduced. Erosion of the north-eastern arc by the modern path is evident. Only two internal facing stones remain in situ. There is no obvious entrance to this hut. Some stone protrudes through turf in the north-western interior. This hut shares a common wall with Hut 10 to the south-west (sx78sw/49/13), but the precise relationship is unclear.
