This small rectangular fortlet measures only 105 x 60 feet (c.32 x 18.3 m) and covers an area of 700 square yards (c.585m²). The interior of the fortlet possibly housed two centuriae or barrackblocks, each about 80 feet (c.24m) long.
There are two superimposed marching camps situated a little to the southwest of the fortlet, about a third of a mile S of Durisdeer church, a legionsized camp of about 50 or so acres and another, smaller camp of about 15¼ acres, both of which have been dated to the Flavian period. Metaldetecting conducted in 1993 brought to light surface finds consisting of an enamelled stud and a disc brooch, the first to be reported from the area.
