The monument comprises the remains of a substantial burnt mound, visible as an upstanding earthwork about 22m long and 12m wide and standing 2m high. The burnt mound is likely to date to between 2000 and 1000 BC. The monument lies on grazing land 10m from the east shore of the Loch of Beosetter, at around 5m above sea level. The monument was first scheduled in 1974, but the documentation does not meet modern standards: the present rescheduling rectifies this.
The area to be scheduled is irregular on plan, to include the remains described above and an area around them within which evidence relating to the monument's construction, use and abandonment may survive, as shown in red on the accompanying map.
