The monument comprises the remains of a ring cairn, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated within open moorland on a SE-facing terrace below the summit of the hill on the E side of the Carneddau. The well-preserved ring cairn is circular on plan and measures about 15m in diameter over a substantial stony ring bank spread to about 3m in thickness and up to 0.6m in height.
