The monument comprises the remains of a ring cairn of earth and stone, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The ring cairn remains has a low circular stony mound, 13m in diameter and up to 0.4m in height. It is located on a low natural rise in ground downslope from the summit of Mynydd-y-Glog. Approximately 900m west, on Mynydd-y-Glog, are a large collection of Bronze Age round cairns.
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 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.
