The beehive hut survives as a circular corbelled chamber approximately 4m in diameter defined by a neatly constructed wall of granite blocks standing up to 2.5m high and connected to a rectangular chamber measuring 3.5m long by 2m wide internally. There are four entrances: one on the north west may be original; one to the east, now blocked, may be secondary; one to the south east inter-connects the two chambers; and the final south western one is much later. The floor of the beehive hut is paved and there is a square cupboard like recess in one wall. The beehive hut is situated in the corner of a field and field boundaries connect to it.
