The monument comprises a standing stone of Neolithic or Bronze Age


The stone stands at around 260m OD approximately 100m from the W bank

of the River Ardle, adjacent to and on the NE side of the modern

road. It measures approximately 1.5m high by 0.8m by 0.7m at the

base. The stone is one of several distributed along Strathardle

relating to ritual activity of the Neolithic and Bronze Age.

Monuments of this kind can indicate the presence of evidence for

ritual practice over a protracted period of which the standing stone

is only the most visible remnant.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the stone and an area around it

in which traces of associated ritual activity may be expected to survive. It is semi-circular with a diameter of 15m as marked in red

on the accompanying map.
