The hut circle is clear and very large - internal diameter c 10 m. It is fairly well preserved, although there is little standing masonry. The line of the wall is marked by large stones, presumably facing stones, except on the S, where more remains, including some core material. Some internal facing is visible but more is probably protected by fallen stone (possibly external facing too). It is significant that this is the side furthest from the nearby modern field wall. There is no clear entrance.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. 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.
