A discontinuous stony bank measuring about 1.5m thick and up to 0.4m in height describes a crude oval within which there is rig measuring from 2.5m to 4m between furrows and cairns measuring from 2m to 5m in diameter and up to 0.5m in height. Within the area of the bank is a platform (NX 6323 5788) measuring 6.2m from E to W by at least 3.6m transversely and 0.25m on the highest S side. The W, S and E sides have been built of boulders and there is no N side. It has been partially obscured by clearance.
