The monument consists of a hut circle together with an area of cultivation remains. The hut circle is 7m in internal diameter with low walls 1.6m to 1.8m thick. It has an entrance on the E side. To the S and E lies and extensive area of cultivation remains, in the form of clearance cairns and slight banks marking the edges of ancient fields. The area to be scheduled includes the hut-circle and a representative section of the field system, encompassing an irregular area 140m NNE-SSW by 55m, maximum, as delineated in red on the attached plan.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a fine example of an apparently simple combination of a single dwelling with a field system. In addition, the monument offers the potential for investigation of the later prehistoric farming economy of the area, since there appears to have been no agricultural disturbance since the settlement site was abandoned, and deposits within and below the hut-circle and clearance cairns and field banks should survive intact.
