The monument comprises a standing stone of Neolithic or Bronze Age date. The standing stone measures some 2m in height and stands some 200m E of the River Ardle close to the modern road at around 200m OD. It is one of several such monuments in Strathardle relating to ritual activity of Neolithic and Bronze Age date. Monuments of this kind can contain evidence for ritual practice over a protracted period of which a standing stone is only the most visible remnant. The area to be scheduled encompasses the standing stone and an area around it in which traces of associated ritual activity may be expected to survive. It is sub-circular with a maximum diameter of 20m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
