Description

The monument consists of a well preserved platform hut, defined by stone foundations apparently intended to support a turf superstructure. The building is notable for the use of upright stone slabs to define the inside walls and doorway. The building could date from as early as the medieval period.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits, including internal floor levels and possibly structural elements. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A platform house may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can be further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
