The monument comprises an enclosure of prehistoric date, visible as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies on the western edge of a terrace at about 90m O.D. and NNW of Tulloch of Pitnacree. The enclosure is roughly D-shaped, defined to the NE and NW by a curvilinear ditch and to the SE by the edge of the terrace. The area thus enclosed measures c. 50m NE-SW by 25m NW-SE. At least two disc-shaped cropmarks visible within the encolsure appear to indicate the presence of timber roundhouse foundations.

Enclosed settlements of this type are characteristic of the Iron Age.

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 quadrangular in shape, measuring 70m NE-SW by 35m transversely as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
