This ring cairn is defined by a spread turf-covered stony mound, 0.5m high and with a diameter 19.2m. Traces of banking are evident on the N and E, and large stones are visible on the N and W perimeter. A ruined cist lies at centre and a OS trig pillar lies on the SE bank.
A transmission tower has recently been constructed to the immediate E of the cairn.
