Full description:

"Situated on the south facing slopes above the southern shore of Eilean Chalium Cille, the remains of this structure survive as a mound of stone measuring approximately 8 metres from west to east and 5 metres from north to south. The remains were heavily overgrown and defining the exact form of the remains was impossible during the current survey. This feature is located immediately to the north of enclosure (1.2) and is likely to be related to that feature." (Burgess 2004, 72)
