Summary

Internal diameter 3.5 metres, defined by rubble walls, 1.2 metres wide, 0.5 metres high, of medium and large stones with traces of external facing on south-west. Terraced into slope. Fragmentary walling, possibly forming north-west corner of a small rectangular enclosure joins south and east sides in a way which suggests the hut is primary.
