Enclosed hut group with two round huts and remains of rectangular building and terraced fields to the south and west. The hut group consists of an enclosure wall c. 2.5m wide forming an oval area of 23m by 27m. Inside are two free standing round huts, the larger one has an internal diameter of c. 7.6m and the smaller one 5m. The remains of a possibly later rectangular building lie to the SE of the enclosure. There has been some disturbance of the stone inside the enclosure, possibly a result of the late 19th century excavations, and some of the walls have been rebuilt.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehsitoric settlement and defence. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
