Hut (i), on the E., is 14 ft. in diameter, with a wall of piled stones 5-6 ft. thick and 1 ft. high, and a probable entrance on the N.E.

Hut (ii), 35 yds. N.W. of (i), is 10 ft. in diameter, with a wall of earth and piled stones 3 ft. thick and 1 ft. high, and an entrance on the S.W.

Hut (iii), 12 yds. N.W. of (ii), is 18ft. in diameter; its N.E. half is overlain by a ruined sheepfold. Its wall, 3 ft. thick, is of piled stones with traces of slab facing.

Hut (iv), 20 yds. N.E. of(iii), lies at the foot of a low crag and is 16-17 ft. in diameter with a wall 3-5 ft. thick and a probable entrance on the S.E. The huts stand within a partly cleared enclosure surrounded by a ruined wall of earth and stones 3 ft. thick and 1 ft. high, best preserved along the S.W. side of the level ground and for a short length leading N. from Hut (i). Arch. Camb., 1950, p. 39, No.i. The cairn mentioned there is probably modern.
