This fort occupies the SW end of a low ridge immediately W of Portcastle. Girt with cliffs everywhere except the NE, a sub-rectangular area measuring 80m from NNE to SSW by 36m transversely (0.27ha) is cut off by a single wall drawn in a gentle arc across its level summit. The wall is reduced to a stony bank 3.7m in thickness by 0.5m in height, and a gap midway along its line is possibly the entrance. The whole of the interior has been cultivated in curvilinear rigs.
