Description

The monument comprises the remains of a palisaded settlement of later prehistoric date represented by cropmarks visible on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 40m OD. The enclosure is defined by two concentric palisade slots which define an overall area of approximately 60m NE-SW by about 50m. The palisade lines are some 5m-8m apart and each is some 1m-2m wide. Palisaded enclosures are a characteristic monument of the 1st millennium BC in Scotland.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the enclosure and an area around it 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.
