The monument comprises two kerb-cairns of prehistoric date.

The monument lies on an irregular terrace at around 130m OD. It comprises two kerb-cairns. The first cairn measures about 7m in diameter and stands to a height of about 0.4m.

Most of the kerb-stones are still visible, although the W half of the cairn has been extensively robbed. The second cairn lies to the SSE. It also measures about 7m in diameter, and stands to a height of about 0.5m. The best-preserved stretches of kerb are on the W and SE sides of this cairn.

Cairns of this type are funerary monuments dating to the Bronze Age, and may be expected to contain material relating to their mode of construction and use.

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 rectangular, measuring 50m NNW-SSE by 30m WSW-ENE, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
