The monument comprises a standing stone of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The monument stands at around 118m OD in the grounds of Monzie Castle. The stone measures approximately 1.2m high by 1m by 1.8m and was apparently associated with a small adjacent round mound some 5m in diameter which is no longer extant. The site is traversed by a causewayed track of unknown age. The standing stone and possibly the former mound represent elements of a Neolithic or Bronze Age ritual site, other elements of which may be represented by buried deposits around the stone.

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 20m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
