The monument is a scheduled standing stone of the Bronze Age, 3000 to 4000 years old, situated on top of a natural knoll to the SW of Auchingarrich Farm. The stone is a massive block of conglomerate schist about 2.5m high. A small metal pin has been inserted into the top of the stone. The original area of scheduling is not known since no annotated map accompanies the scheduling papers. The area to be scheduled includes the stone and an area around it within which traces of activity associated with its use may be found. The area is a circle 20m in diameter centred on the stone, as marked in red on the attached map.
