A building measuring 6m from N to S by 2.8m transversely within a stone-faced rubble bank 1m in thickness and 0.4m in height, is situated to the SE of a sheepfold on the N bank of the Gold Burn. Its N end has been reduced and an enclosure is appended to the W side. An earth-and-stone field bank, depicted on the OS 1:10,560 map (1962), encloses an area to the N.
