Situated on open hillside to NE of Llyn Nantlle Uchaf, the fort is on a rocky knoll which forms the W end of a small ridge. The enclosure is of irregular shape of c. 30m in diameter and surrounded by dry stone walling of large slabs which is about 2.5m in thickness with a slight batter on both sides. Externally it stands to about 1m in places, but internally it is mostly levelled. There is a much ruined entrance on the W side.
