The monument comprises two standing stones of prehistoric date, visible as upstanding monuments.

The monument was first scheduled on 9th April 1930, but an inadequate area was included to protect all of the archaeological remains. The present rescheduling rectifies this.

The monument lies about 240m E of Dalchira Farm, at about 125m OD. The stones, which stand in a grass-covered field, stand 2.1m and 1.3m high respectively, and are situated c.2.5m apart. Another standing stone is located 290m NW of this monument. The monument probably relates to ritual activity of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the standing stones and an area around them within which related material may be expected to survive. The area to be scheduled is roughly figure-of-eight in shape, comprising overlapping circles of 10m diameter around each stone, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
