Full description

Gerrard, S., 1990-2002, Monument Protection Programme. Archaeological Item Dataset., MPP 133438 (Report - Survey). SDV277946.

Positive identification of this item is not possible since it could be a hut circle or partly robbed cairn. Its location, immediately beside 2 hut circles would support the building interpretation, but large numbers of cairns do survive on this hillside. Butler records this item as a cairn, but it is more likely to be a stone hut circle.
