This camp was discovered from the air by RCAHMS in 1977, on a slope overlooking the River Tweed. The northern corner-angle and attached, a 1,800 ft. length of the NW side and about 560 ft of the NE side are so far known. Two gateways are visible in the long NW side, one of which is defended by a titulum earthwork. The SE side has not been located, but local topography would allow a NW-SE dimension of between 755 to 985 ft.
