The monument comprises the remains of a stone circle of Neolithic or Bronze Age date represented by a number of fallen slabs.

The monument lies on a ridge on Hill of Drimmie at around 250m OD. It

is represented by seven stones close to the original arc of the

circle and a further stone slightly off line to the S. The circle may have originally measured approximately 6-7m in diameter. The site represents a ritual monument of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the visible features and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 30m as marked in red on

the accompanying map.
