The monument consists of a cup and ring marked boulder 5m west of the northwest wall of a disused sheepfold and immediately east of a track through a forestry plantation. On the upper surface of the boulder are the weathered remains of at least nineteen cupmarks, which measure up to 70mm by 15mm, and two cups surrounded by single rings. The scheduled area is centred on the rock, circular on plan and measures 2m in diameter.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because, despite not being a spectacular example of its type, it is one of a very significant group of prehistoric rock carvings in the Kilmartin Valley; together this remarkable concentration can be compared with similar regional groups in Strathtay, the Machars of Wigtown and in Northumberland and it has the potential to provide information about late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age life, particularly its ritual aspects.
