The monument comprises the remains of a burial cairn, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated in moorland on the summit of the hill on the E side of the Carneddau. The grass-covered cairn is circular on plan and measures about 9.5m in diameter and up to 0.5m in height.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual.
