The monument consists of a group of three rectangular stone

buildings, which formed a small post-medieval township.

The buildings measure between 10-12m in length, 7-8m in width and a maximum of 2.5m in height. To the NE of the structures there is an associated stone-walled enclosure.

The area to be scheduled measures 80m NE-SW by 50m, to include the visible remains and an area around in which traces of activities associated with their use may survive, as depicted in red on the attached map.
