The monument comprises the remains of four burial mounds of the late Neolithic or earlier Bronze Age, some 3500 to 5000 years old. The westernmost measures c 11m in diameter, is 1.4m high and is surrounded by a low wall, which may be a drystone kerb. Immediately to the NE lies the second mound, which measures c 24m (N-S) by 20m transversely and is 0.7m in height. It is also contained within a low stone wall which may be a kerb. To the E, lying between a field boundary to the W and a track on the other three sides, are the remains of the third barrow, which takes the form of a low mound with an ill defined boundary, set on a knoll the shape of which has been distorted by dumping of filed clearance.

To the SE, in an arable field, lies the fourth mound which measures 14m in diameter and 0.6m in height. Four separate areas are proposed for scheduling. Each area is centred on one of the four barrows and all four areas are circular, measuring 30m in diameter, to include the barrows and areas around them in which the remains associated with the use of the mounds will survive. Modern features, including the track, and existing field fences and walls are specifically excluded from the scheduling.

Statement of Scheduling

The monuments are of national importance as well preserved Neolithic or Bronze Age burial mounds, which have the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of prehistoric burial and ceremonial practices. They are of particular interest for two reasons; first, they appear to have been undisturbed by antiquarian excavators. Second, they are unusual in that they occur as a group, while most of the other surviving mounds of this period in Perthshire occur singly; examination of the relationship between the four mounds and the other ceremonial structures which survive in the area, would provide information of considerable importance.
