This souterrain is one of a number that were discovered in this area, sadly they have been lost, being filled in or destroyed. This structure would have been connected to the round house and was used essentially as a fridge for storing food and grains etc. This example has two compartments which can be seen by the remains of the stones which project into the walkway. The structure would have originally had a roof, which would have either been timber covered with turf, of stone lintels. The souterrain is around 20 metres in length. When the souterrain was discovered in 1871 a number of items were recovered. Notably some bronze rings, pottery, saddle querns and fragments of Roman glass and pottery. On entering the the structure a cup and ring stone can be seen on the lower right hand wall. Also on the grass beside the structure is a cup stone.
