This hut circle is fairly well-preserved and lies just within the enclosure walls of the pound on the north-western arc. It measures 5.0 meters in diameter internally and has no clear entrance. The walls survive to 0.5 meters in height and 3.0 meters in width and are largely bracken and bilberry-covered.
