The monument comprises the remains of an enclosed settlement of multiple hut circles, which probably dates from the first millennium BC. The site is in improved pasture with rock outcrops, on a gentle slope with good views from NE to SE. The interior is slightly levelled, resulting in a positive scarp on the east and a negative one with a wall on top on the west. There is a slight outer bank visible on the NW; the 'bank' off to the NE is a ridge of rock. A path runs from an original entrance on the east past two huts and terminates at a third.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement practices. It is an important relic of the prehistoric landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of environmental and structural evidence, including preserved internal and external floor levels.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
