The monument comprises a hut circle of prehistoric date.

The monument lies on a spur of ground in rough grassland, at around 320m OD, overlooking the Allt Fearn to the S. It comprises a hut circle measuring about 9m in internal diameter, defined by a turf-covered wall measuring about 0.3m high. The wall is spread to about 2.5m wide, giving the hut-circle an overall diameter of about 14m.

Hut circles are characteristic of Bronze and Iron Age settlement sites and represent the remains of timber-roofed roundhouses.

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 circular with a diameter of 45m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
