The monument comprises the remains of a ring cairn, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The cairn is defined by a low circular earth and stone bank 1m wide and up to 0.5m high which forms a ring 14m in diameter. The monument is intact and in good condition.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The feature is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Ring cairns may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can be further enhanced by their group value.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
