Tre'r Ceiri is located on the most easterly peak of Yr Eifl, of which the summit rises to 485m OD. The fort consists of a stone wall enclosing an irregular oval 290m long and with a maximum width of 104m. There is a further wall on the north west, and outside this and between it and the main wall there are irregular groups of small enclosures which continue around the south end of the hillfort. Within the main wall there are remains of about 150 stone huts.
