The monument is a farmstead of the pre-improvement period situated on the E flank of Tansy Hill, and NE of Wily Sike. It consists of a platform building, measuring 7.2m by 2.5m internally, a stack-stand 5.2m in diameter and traces of three other buildings. Adjacent to the farmstead is an area of cultivation terraces and rig-and-furrow fields. A modern sheep-stell overlies part of the farmstead, c. 3m to the N of the platform building. The area to be proposed for scheduling is a circle, centred on the sheep-stell, and measuring 100m in diameter.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because it is a well preserved example of a farmstead of this period which has the potential to enhance our understanding of monuments of this type. Its importance is increased because of the unusual additional of cultivation terraces to the more normal rig-and-furrow fields. The site has the potential to greatly increase the understanding of Medieval and Post-Medieval settlement and economy in the upland areas of S Scotland.
