The monument comprises a cup marked stone dating from the Neolithic (4100-2200BC) to Bronze Age (2200-800BC). The stone is built into a ruined stone dyke running northeast-southwest from on an area of flat ground to the southeast of a narrow burn.

The cup marked stone is a rounded granite boulder measuring 1.3m long by 0.75m wide and 0.75 m high. The stone has up to five cup marks and may have originally been a standing stone.

The scheduled area is circular, measuring 12m in diameter. It includes the remains described above and an area around within which evidence relating to the monument's construction, use and abandonment is expected to survive, as shown in red on the accompanying map.
