The monument comprises a depopulated settlement of of post-medieval date.

The monument lies in rough moorland at between 380-500m O.D. and consists of the abandoned township of Druimnanagnach. The township, as depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition map (1867), comprises one partially roofed, eight unroofed buildings (one of which is a long building of approximately 50m), three enclosures and a head-dyke. The remains are generally of turf covered walls about 0.6m high although one of the buildings is extant to eaves height. The buildings vary in size from c. 7m by 2m to c.4m by 3m. Fourteen unroofed buildings, two enclosures and a head-dyke are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1972).

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is irregular in shape, with maximum dimensions of about 1490m NW-SE by 670m NE-SW, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
