It is mainly of drystone, with some areas of mortared masonry. The building measures 11.2m x 3.9m internally and stands today to a maximum height of 2.2m, with walls 0.9m thick. The S wall has a single entrance, 0.8m wide, as well as two 0.5m wide windows. The stonework dressings of the door and windows is finely-cut and shaped. The interior has been divided into rooms and outside the building is a sub-circular enclosure, 7m x 5m.
