The monument is a well preserved earthwork of the medieval period. It measures 36m NNW-SSE by 34m transversely within a ditch c 2m deep and c 8m wide on the N and W sides, backed by a rampart 4m across and 1m high on the N. The ditch continues as a well-defined scarp on the steep S side; there are no traces of defences on the precipitous E side. There is a counterscarp bank 5m across and 1m high on the W side. The enclosed area will almost certainly contain traces of timber or stone buildings; there are traces of stone walling on the rampart on the W side. The area to be scheduled measures 90m E to W by 75m transversely, as marked in red on the attached map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is a well preserved defended homestead with impressive field characteristics. This type of monument is not common, especially in Tayside and this monument has the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of settlement and defence in medieval Scotland. It is of particular interest because of the light that excavation would cast on the economy and domestic arrangements of minor landholders in the early medieval period.
