The monument comprises a stone circle of prehistoric date, visible as a series of upstanding stones. The monument is being re-scheduled in order to clarify the extent of the protected area.

The monument occupies a clearing within a forestry plantation at about 350m OD. It consists of a setting of three standing stones, at one time probably part of a larger group, enclosing an area some 5m across. The N stone is the largest, being rectangular in shape and measuring about 1.8m high by 1.7m long and 0.4m wide. The S stone measures about 1.7m high, and the third, to the E, measures about 1.1m in height. The monument is likely to be of Neolithic date.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area between and around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 40m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
