Description

The monument comprises a standing stone of Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The stone stands on the summit of a low hill overlooking the Noran Water. It is some 1.85m high by 2m around the base.

Monuments of this kind served as focal points for ritual activity during the Later Neolithic and Bronze Age periods.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the standing stone and an area around it in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 20m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
