Full description

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1950, SX57SE41 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV276070.

(SX 5650 7297) One of a group of 17 hut circles, given the letter 'N'. Double wall type, diameter 7.0 metres, wall width 1.5 metres, height 0.1 - 0.3 metres. These remains are even more fragmentary than those of Hut Circle M (). Most of the stones have been pillaged - there is only a short fragment of double-wall on the south-western side and the remainder of the wall is only traceable by odd stones and a very low turf bank. Condition very poor.
