The monument is a settlement of the later Bronze Age, some 2500 to 3000 years old, comprising the remains of seven houses and fragments of a field system and clearance cairns within a clearing in a forest.

Six of the houses lie in a group near the western end of the area and the seventh lies at the eastern end. The houses are a mixture of double and single wall huts ranging in overall diameter from 8.5m to 14m in diameter. In the area around and between them are lynchets, field walls and clearance cairns, indicating the extent of the contemporary field system. Small parts of the settlement were excavated in the first half of this century.

The area to be scheduled is long, narrow and irregular, with a dog-log partway along its length, as marked in red on the attached map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a well preserved settlement which has the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of upland settlement and land use in prehistory. It is of particular importance as the 'type-site' for the Dalrulzion class of hut circle, found only in this part of Scotland.
