The monument comprises a standing stone of prehistoric date, visible as an upstanding monument.

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

The monument is sited on Aodann Mhor, about 680m E of Cornoch, at about 200m OD, on grass moorland. The stone has a broad base and tapers up sharply towards its top, almost to a point. It stands to a maximum height of c.2.8m, but leans to the SW. Five other standing stones are situated within 1 kilometre of this monument. The monument probably relates to ritual activity of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the standing stone and an area around it within which related material may be expected to survive. It comprises a circular area 10m in diameter, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
