An enclosed hut group of 2 round huts lying in an irregular enclosure. A possible third hut lies against the enclosing wall S of the entrance. The monument is only a part of extensive early remains containing other hut groups, enclosures and cairns.
The enclosing wall is 1.8 m wide with orthostatic facing stones and rubble centre. The enclosure is c. 30 m in diameter and has an entrance, facing NW, 2.5 m wide.
The two central huts lie adjacent to one another. Both have inner and outer facing stones with a rubble centre, and both have NW facing entrances. The N hut is 6.5 m in diameter, the other 7.0 m. What appears to be a stone and earth bank runs from the entrance of the N hut to the enclosure wall. With the exception of this wall, the huts are free-standing within the enclosure.
The third hut is built into the enclosure wall just S of the entrance. It is much ruined. Field boundaries run off to the N and SW from the enclosure.
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.
