The remains of a shieling of medieval date situated on level ground on the edge of the Great Burn and orientated north west to south east. The shieling is visible as the foundations of a rectangular dry stone building measuring 5.5 metres by 3.5 metres. It is bounded by walls 0.7 metres wide which stand to a maximum height of 0.5 metres. There are indications of a doorway through the eastern wall facing onto the riverside and a stone wall divides the shieling into two rooms of roughly equal size. Scheduled.
