Glenfahan Beehive Huts

Map Reference: V330970 (0330 0970)

In Glenfahan there is a conjoined pair of ruined huts. As with many of such structures, the corbelled roof is missing. The larger hut is about 3.5m internally and it has two entrances, one of which is now blocked. This entrance is inside a field boundary and the other is outside. This outer entrance is about 1m high. The connecting doorway between the huts is less than 1.5m high. The smaller building is less than 3m internally and it has a small wall recess less than 1m square. Just up the hill is a fragment of another hut and about 100m further west is an intact beehive chamber almost totally below ground level. There are remains of many other structures in the vicinity.
