The monument comprises a standing stone of prehistoric date.

The stone stands in an arable field at around 100m OD some 200m from the NE bank of the River Garry. It comprises an undressed block some 1.6m high with a rectangular base. Despite its traditional association with Claverhouse and the Battle of Killiecrankie the stone is likely to date to the Neolithic or Bronze Age periods. Such monuments formed a focal point for burial and ritual long after their initial emplacement.

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