I headed south from the remnants of the cairn, crossed the track, jumped the fence and headed west. A fence runs through the middle of the 9 meter wide hut circle. The circular wall of the hut can be clearly seen, when at the site, and I somehow managed to walk through the front door which is in the east. Some of the wall is over 2 meters wide but is no more than 70-80 centimetres high.

Good views south to Cairn Mon Earn and Blarourie (a hill I will have a good look at very soon).

From the hut circle I made my way down to the minor road and headed west. The Nine Stanes RSC can be seen from the road. Just round the corner is the car park where the walk started.
