Description

The monument comprises the remains of a sub-rectangular enclosed settlement of prehistoric date represented by cropmarks visible on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 20-25m OD. It comprises a sub-rectangular enclosure measuring about 40m by 50m and defined by a ditch some 2-3m wide. Sub-rectangular enclosures of this kind are commonly thought to relate to the period of Roman influence in lowland Scotland although some may in fact be medieval in date.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the cropmark remains and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 100m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
