A prehistoric unenclosed hut circle settlement and field system situated on a north facing hillslope near the summit of Snear Hill. A group of at least five stone founded round houses lie below a break in the slope on a level shelf of land. North of this settlement lies an associated field system which comprises low linear stone and earth banks up to 0.2 metres high, 17 clearance cairns and faint traces of cord rig cultivation. Amongst the clearance cairns lie the remains of two probable burial cairns and on the eastern margin of the clearance cairns lie two house platforms, scooped into the hillslope.
