Earthworks, in the form of earth and stone banks and traces of dry stone walls, mark the position of two enclosures containing hut circles, a smaller enclosure containing a hut circle, a field system, and a hollow way. Nearby, archaeologists found a circular carving in a natural rock outcrop, although it is impossible to say when it was carved.
