The monument comprises three standing stones of prehistoric date.

The monument comprises a group of standing stones, two of which still stand upright at the edge of a field by Tullibardine Road on the outskirts of Auchterarder, and one which now stands in a small grassy area in the centre of the road junction. The two standing stones in the edge of the field beside the road measure about 1.5m and 1.6m high. There are further fragments of what may be fallen stones partly buried in undergrowth close to the upright stones.

The smaller of the two upright stones measures about 0.8m wide by 25cm thick, while the larger stone measures about 1.1m wide by about 35cm thick. The single stone in the centre of the road junction bears a groove across it, possibly from an attempt to cut it down into a millstone.

This single stone may have been re-erected, but is still of potential significance as part of the stone setting. The stones are thought to be the remnants of a stone setting, and probably relate to ritual activity of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area proposed for scheduling is in two parts; the first covering the two stones in the edge of the field and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. This is a truncated circle with a radius of 35m centred on the mid point between the two stones, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

The second area covers the single stone in the centre of the road junction and a small area around it 2m in diameter centred on the stone itself, indicated by a red dot on the accompanying map.
