The monument comprises a fort and later dun on the crest of a rocky ridge. The fort measures about 42.5 x 30.5m within two ramparts which are presently defined by low scarps. On the W both lines of rampart have been disturbed by cultivation. Much of the interior of the fort is covered by the dun, which is oval in plan and measures internally about 15m x 12m. Its wall consists of a band of debris about 3m thick. There is no clear indication of the position of the entrance. There are two small circular hollows in the interior of the dun, the larger of which is about 4m across and has a low stone bank arounds its edge.
The area to be scheduled measures 100m E-W and 110m N-S to include the fort, the dun and an area around these monuments in which traces of activities associated with their use may survive.
