The N stone is some 1.5m high with a basal girth of approximately 3.5m. Traces of packing stones are visible at its base. The S stone has a basal girth of approximately 5m and has slumped to one side. The monument is one of a number in Strathardle relating to ritual activity in the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods.

It is sub-circular with a maximum diameter of 30m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
