Details Remains of a multi-vallate hillfort, comprised of five concentric ramparts. The three outermost appear as earth and rubble banks, while the innermost two are of dry stone walling. There are five entrances, two of which are blocked by the drystone walls, which are of later construction. All of the entrances are stepped to form a zig-zag. It is clear that there are at least two or three structural phases.
