The monument comprises the remains of two circular houses (hut circles) of the Bronze Age. The southern circle is a double walled "Dalrulzian" type measuring 15m in diameter. The northern circle is single walled and measures 11.5m in diameter. The areas to be scheduled around the hut circles measure 30m in diameter, centred on the circles, to include the circles and areas around them in which traces of activity associated with their use will survive, as marked in red on the attached map.
