The monument is a cup and ring-marked outcrop of rock, overlooking the nearby Iron Age fort, situated on an east-facing slope at c. 345m OD.

The outcrop measures about 18m by 8m and in its S half, in area measuring about 6m by 3m, are about 30 cupmarks, two of which are encircled by rings.

The area to be scheduled includes the rock outcrop and an area around it in which other marks and other traces of contemporary human activity may survive. It measures 25m in diameter, as marked in red on the attached map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a well-preserved example of Neolithic or Bronze Age rock carving. It is of particular interest because of the density of markings in this part of Perthshire, where there seems to be a close link between cupmarks and their surrounding landscape.
