The monument is a cairn, a burial monument of the early Bronze Age, measuring 23m in diameter and 2.2m in height. It seems to have suffered little disturbance although a depression on the W side may be a relatively recent corn-drying kiln. Complex remains of burials and rituals associated with them may survive. An area 50m in diameter to include the cairn and an area around it, in which remains of associated activities are likely to survive, is proposed for scheduling.
