The monument comprises the remains of a turf-covered round cairn, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). It is located centrally in an enclosed field of pasture on a gentle S-facing slope overlooking the Camddwr. The cairn is circular in shape on plan and measures c. 14m in diameter. It is flat-topped and a maximum of 0.6m in height. There is a shallow depression at the centre of the mound.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices.

There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence.
