Iron Age multivallate fortification utilising a natural mound, surviving as an earthwork. The hillfort (Blawearie Fort) is visible as an earthwork on air photographs. The irregular, curvilinear fort consists of an inner and outer rampart separated by a berm. The ramparts are not concentric. The inner rampart is formed by a single bank, flanked to the west by an external ditch. The outer bank does not form a complete circuit; the northern side is naturally defensive. Again there is an external ditch on the western and south-western sides. The entrance to the fort appears to be in the north-west.
