The monument is a well-preserved prehistoric burial mound, which will contain at least one burial and which will preserve a contemporary ground surface beneath it. It was first scheduled in 1968. The map attached to that scheduling did not clearly depict the scheduled area: this re-scheduling rectifies this.

The mound lies in the garden of Balenduin, in a prominent position overlooking the Tay valley. It measures c.17m across and 3.5 m high. A path has been formed around its eastern and southern skirts. A cupmarked stone lies on its flank.

The area now to be scheduled measures a maximum of 20m across, as marked in red on the attached map. The surface of the path is specifically excluded to permit maintenance.
