Description

The monument comprises a standing stone of Neolithic or Bronze Age date. The stone stands at around 255m OD some 300m N of the River Ardle and immediately to the N of the modern road. It measures some 1.5m high with a basal girth of around 3m. The stone is one of several such monuments distributed along Strathardle relating to ritual activity of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

Monuments of this kind can indicate the presence of evidence for ritual practice over a protracted period of which the stone is only the most visible remnant. The area to be scheduled encompasses the stone and an area around it in which traces of associated ritual activity may be expected to survive. It is semi-circular with a diameter of 20m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
