Apparently contemporary with the cottages at Ceunant. The function of the outbuildings is unclear but they were probably primarily for storage and possibly for the housing of goats or other livestock in winter.


Each is of lean-to form, the larger on the main approach to the cottages partly built into the grass bank. Uncoursed rubblestone with slate slab roofs, now, and possibly from the start, partly turfed over. Larger outbuilding has low doorway and hatch on west side and further low doorway on north side; smaller outbuilding with doorway on west side.
