The monument comprises a hut-circle of prehistoric date, visible as turf-covered footings.

The monument lies in moorland, at around 800m OD. The hut-circle measures about 15m NE-SW by 13.5m internally, and has been slightly levelled into the natural slope. Its walls comprise a turf-covered boulder bank up to 3m thick and 0.3m high.

There appears to be an entrance on the SE. On the NE there is a line of boulders but it is not clear whether they belong to the inner or outer wall face, and on the NW, just within the line of the bank, there is a low arcing scarp.

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 50m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

The monument is of national importance because of its potential to contribute to our understanding of prehistoric settlement and economy. It may be expected to contain evidence relating to its construction and occupation. It is of particular importance because of the proximity of other, broadly contemporary structures.
