A polygonal enclosed homestead with the remains of hut circles in some of the angles, sited on a level shelf in a west-facing slope, and a burnt mound close to a stream nearby. See individual descriptions. ME118A The enclosed homestead is on a small level area in a moderately steep west-facing slope, just above the track to the farm and close to the road and to a substantial stream. The layout remains clear but the site is not particularly well preserved, the walls being low grassy banks with some visible stone. ME118B The mound is crescent-shaped with a dip right across the middle which almost divides it in two.
