Full description:

"Situated on the southern slopes of the hills overlooking the south shore of Eilean Chalium Cille, the remains of this structure survive as a stone lined hollow in the ground and measure 0.75 metres in diameter and 0.5 metres deep. Located 8 metres to the north of a similar feature (12.1/2.9) this structure may represent the remains of a kiln, or alternatively may mark the stone hole of a large stone that was removed during the episodes of clearance that occurred during the mid 1980s." (Burgess 2004, 81)
