The monument comprises a cairn of prehistoric date, visible as a tree-covered mound.

The monument lies in arable farmland on a small knoll, at around 75m OD. There is a circular mound, measuring about 12m in diameter and about 0.9m in height. Around the base of the cairn are the remains of an enclosing bank which was built in 1791 to protect it. The monument is a burial mound of a type characteristic of the Neolithic or Bronze Age.
