Originally a group of at east twenty Bronze Age round cairns on Rustif Head, interspersed with low banks and lynchets forming part of a field system. The majority of the cairns and the associated banks and lynchets have been destroyed by ploughing. Six cairns survive as upstanding earthworks, each with a stony mound.
