This camp lies about 500 feet S of the Antonine fortlet. Its entire W side, 425 ft. long, and lengths of the N and S defences including attached W corner-angles were identified on aerial photographs taken in the late-1940's. Crop-mark evidence of the E side, 425 ft. long, was obtained from A.P.'s taken in the early-1950's. Each visible side is possessed of a gateway with titulus outwork. The E-W dimension of the camp is around 550 ft.

Aside from the nearby fort at Milton, there are more camps about ¾ mile to the north, situated on the east side of the road at Beattock.
