The monument comprises a hut circle of prehistoric date, visible as a grassed-over earthwork.

The monument lies on a locally prominent natural mound in rough grassland at around 340m OD. It comprises a sub-circular hut circle measuring about 12m N-S by about 11m E-W internally. The entrance is on the S arc of the hut circle.

Hut circles such as this are characteristic of Bronze and Iron Age settlement sites and represent the remains of timber-roofed roundhouses. The present site is one of a series of prehistoric settlement and funerary remains on the hillside, including a burial cairn which lies close by to the SW.

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 40m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
