The monument comprises the remains of a deserted farmstead of the period before the agricultural improvements. It is between 200 and 400 years old, and can probably be identified as Coilleachur farm. There are the remains of four buildings, ranging in size from 8m x 8m to 20m x 9m, over walls surviving as high as 1m at a gable. There are traces of earlier buildings around. In the vicinity there are the slight remains of field boundaries probably associated with the farmstead. The area to be scheduled measures 90m in diameter, centred on the farmstead.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a well preserved example of a pre-improvement farmstead, which has the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of late-and post-medieval settlement and agriculture. The monument is of particular interest because of the evidence for at least two phases of occupation. Taken with the other farmsteads of the period which survive in the area this monument also has the potential to increase our understanding of the development and use of the landscape before the agricultural improvements.
