Cronk ny Merriu is a coastal promontory fort with defensive ditch and rampart. The high ground location offers good views of the surrounding coast.
Behind the fort are the remains of a homestead. Originally believed to have been built in the Celtic Iron Age it was later re-occupied during the Norse Period. The site has a building nearly rectangular in construction with three doorways and a standard Norse central hearth.
