The monument is a standing stone, measuring 1.5m high, by 1.1m wide, by 0.4m thick, standing near the edge of the old A9 road. It was first scheduled in 1964 but only the stone itself was protected; the present re-scheduling rectifies this.

Standing stones were erected in a number of periods, but the majority are believed to have been erected in the Neolithic or Bronze Age periods, between 3000BC and 1000BC.

The area to be scheduled measures 10m in diameter, centred on the stone, to include the stone and an area around it in which traces of activity associated with its use may survive, as marked in red on the attached map.
