The monument comprises the remains of a stone circle of Neolithic or Bronze Age date represented by a single surviving upright stone and two fallen stones. The monument lies on a terrace of the River Tay at around 90m OD some 400m N of the river. The single upright stone is some 1.8m high by 1m by 0.7m and lies on the E of the original circle. The fallen slabs measure 2.5m by 1.2m and 3.4m by 1.8m and both have cup-marks on their visible surfaces. A further stone hole was identified in the course of limited excavations. The monument represents a ritual site of the Neolithic or Bronze Age periods. The area to be scheduled encompasses the visible features and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 45m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
