Where is it?
Looks vaguely like a lime kiln.

Maybe an ice house if in the grounds of a grand / or former grand house. Or the remains of a folly.

This one was at the rear of Rob Roy`s grave down a path at the rear of the church.

I did suspect a lime kiln.
Another one I came across was on Mull along the coastal path from Craignure.

Thanks for the link, its there now..
If it should be an ice house I am puzzled why it should have a vent hole at the back..
The one shown was built by a stream.

Could be a spring, or a shrine.

Just wondering if it is a shelter for a shepherd. It looks like a fireplace within a shelter which may have been used to keep new born lambs warm. Not sure about a lime kiln as they are large domed buildings as were ice houses, but I could be wrong there.
