The monument comprises the remains of a stone circle of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The stone circle lies in agricultural land at around 90m OD on the valley floor some 700m N of the River Tay. Three stones of the circle remain standing of at least four that were originally present. These range from 1-2m in height. A fourth stone has been re-erected in

recent times. The area defined by the stones measures 3.9m WSW-ENE by 2.7m. Partial excavation revealed Bronze Age pottery fragments and cremated bone.

The monument is one of a number of ritual sites of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods distributed along Strathtay.

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 40m as marked in red on

the accompanying map.
