|Location||Near Lyne, Scotland
|Altitude||407 m (1,335 ft)|
The hillfort on the neighbouring hill White Meldon is about 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east, on the other side of Meldon Burn.
The hill has elevation 407 metres (1,335 ft). There is a gentle slope from the summit on the west side, steeper on other sides. The roughly oval fort on the summit is 73 metres (240 ft) north–south and 40 metres (130 ft) west–east, defined by a boundary wall, which is now a band of debris about 3 metres (10 ft) wide. On the north, west and south sides there is the debris of an outer wall.
Within the fort, at least three house-platforms have been detected.
