The remains occupy a platform about 40m square on the W bank of Allt Coire Cronaidh above its confluence with River Rhidorroch. The most recent occupation comprises two longhouses 12m x 4m, 3-room and 18m x 6m, 2-room with extensions and enclosure adjoining N. These overlay a complex of foundations consisting of a double line of buildings, possible courtyard with paved areas, and two deep pits with drain, with the enclosure on N on different axis. Although overlooked by a rocky knoll to S the site has a moderate defensive appearance.
