This fort occupies a small promontory 170 yds SW of Pettico Wick harbour. The promontory has been cut off by a curved rampart 45 yds long, 21ft broad and 1 1/2ft high. The entrance is close to the cliff at the SW point.

This promontory fort comprises a low, curving rampart with traces of stone-work here and there in it. It attains a spread of some 7.0m and is 0.5m in height. The course of a slight bank is traceable around the edge of the cliff.
