The notice nearby says:

'Fulachfa Fiadh is the Irish name given to an ancient cooking-pit -which dates from-the Bronze-Age. The pit or hole was lined with slabs of wood or stone, and then filled with water which was usually diverted from a nearby stream. Heated stones were used to boil the water, in which meat wrapped in straw was cooked. The stones became fragmented by the heat and were discarded nearby giving the characteristic Horse shoe shaped mound. (For visual purposes the mound is now outlined with a ring of large stones). Fulachfa Fiadhs may also have been used for ritual purposes, a theory supported by the sighting of this Fulachfa Fiadh which is in close proximity to the stone circle and is positioned directly on the alignment of the mid summer sun rise from the stone circle.'
