The monument comprises two standing stones of Neolithic or Bronze Age date situated in the grounds of Taymouth Castle.

The two stones lie some 17m apart in rough grass at around 135m OD

some 300m E of the River Tay. The NW of the two stones is

approximately 1.5m high and measures some 1.5m by 0.5m at the base.

The SE stone is also some 1.5m high with basal measurements of approximately 1.2m by 1m. It is possible that the two stones may be

the sole visible remnants of a former stone circle similar to others

in the vicinity. The surrounding area is exceptionally rich in ritual monuments of Neolithic and Bronze Age date.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the stones and an area around

them in which traces of associated ritual activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 35m as marked in red on

the accompanying map.
