The remains of a hut group situated on rough, rocky ground. There are two round huts clearly visible towards the N end of the site. The hut to the N forms a level platform on sloping ground and is 8 m in diameter with walls 1.5 m wide and 0.15 - 0.75 m high. The entrance was probably on the E side. The hut to the SE is 5 - 6 m in diameter with walls 1.5 m wide and 0.5 - 0.75 m high. The entrance was possibly on the NW side. In 1868 the Hon. W. O. Stanley noted 12 round huts with associated enclosures on the site.
