Notes: Hut circle at brake corner. Bronze age. Vis=19/5/1960 (os) a circular enclosure bounded by a bank consisting of small stones. Part of the interior has been filled in with cleared field stones. No trace of entrance. No orthostats visible and construction using small stones is unusual for a hut. The exposed situation on crest of spur is more appropriate to a cairn but the walling at best about 0.4m high appears too regular for a cairn rim.
