Lying on a gently sloping S-facing hillside at 83m OD, are the ruined remains of a stone and turf walled long-house. The structure measures 10.5m N-S and 3.4m E-W and lies on an artificial terrace cut out of the hill-slope. A door opening faces E at the S end of the E wall.
A small turf and stone walled enclosure 5.2m by 3m lies 11m to the E of the long-house and is joined to it by a low earth bank.
