Situated on the crest of a low rounded hill immediately W of Lockerbie, this fort was thought to be a Roman fortlet until the character of its triple ditches was revealed by cropmarkings.

This small, square fortlet measures just 95 x 95 feet (c.29 x 29m) and covers an area of just over 1,000 square yards or 33¼ roods (c.840m²).
