The monument comprises a length of the Roman road between Innerpeffray and Gask. It is being re-scheduled in order to clarify the extent of the scheduled area.

The monument lies mainly in woodland, and to the W in pasture, at around 75-85m OD. It comprises a length of Roman road, the course of which has been followed by a later unmetalled road which is now disused. The visible breadth is about 10m wide.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the visible remains of the road and an area around them within which associated deposits may be expected to survive. It forms a slightly curving strip 30m wide by 770m in length, ending at the E at a modern drain, which is itself excluded from scheduling, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
