The monument comprises a substantial circular mound, visible as an upstanding monument.

The monument was first scheduled in 1960, but an inadequate area was included to protect all of the archaeological remains. The present rescheduling rectifies this.

The monument lies in improved pasture about 150m NW of Little Trochry, at about 150m OD. The mound is about 34m in diameter and stands up to 3m in height. It has a small flat area on its summit. Stones are visible protruding through the turf all over the mound, suggesting that it may be built mainly of stone. The monument is probably a burial cairn of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area proposed for scheduling is a circle 57m in diameter, centred on the mound, but truncated on its NW side by the modern A822 road, as marked in red on the accompanying map. It includes the remains described and a 10m-wide strip around the base of the mound within which related material may be expected to survive. It excludes the modern fence adjacent to the road.
