This hut-circle is situated on the N slopes of Craigengale. It is about 8m in diameter and up to 0.4m high. Only the W half is visible above the surface of the peat. The entrance is probably on the SE. A stony bank extends down the slope to the NE. The area proposed for scheduling is a 20m radius circle centred on the hut-circle, as marked in red on the accompanying map.

Statement of Scheduling

This monument is of national importance as part of an extensive area of Bronze Age activity along the upper Lingdowey Burn. It is also of national importance in its own right as a well-preserved prehistoric house foundation, containing evidence (accessible to excavation) for prehistoric domestic settlement and economy. It also serves as an indicator of the likely protection and obscuring by peat of other archaeological remains nearby.
