A well-preserved round hut that probably dates to the prehistoric period. It measures 8m in internal diameter and is built into the steep SW-facing slope. The height of the wall varies from 0.5 - 1.2m high, and it is 2.5m wide. Collapsed rubble covers much of the internal face of the wall. The entrance is on the E side, also covered in wall collapse. A fallen stone 1.5m long may be one of the jambs. Enclosure walls adjoin the hut on the N and SW sides, and link to form a large enclosure W of the hut. It is probably contemporary in date to the round hut. The entrance into the hut lies between two terraces which form the NE side of the enclosure. Much of the loose stone has been collected together (probably in the 20th century) and built into large buttresses.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
