The monument comprises a hut circle of prehistoric date, visible as turf-covered wall footings.

The monument lies in rough pasture at around 105m OD. It comprises a hut circle measuring about 7.7m in internal diameter. Its walls survive as a stony bank measuring about 1.9m thick and about 0.4m in height. There are numerous outer facing-stones visible, measuring up to about 1m by 0.4m by 0.5m in height, and five inner facing-stones are visible on the ESE, adjacent to the entrance.
