The monument comprises the remains of a burial cairn, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The monument is c.23 m in diameter, c.75m in circumference. The cairn has spread but remains unopened. There is a summit cairn on top and it is crossed by a field wall. The original boundary of the cairn is traceable by a hump in the ground.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The monument is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. 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.
