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

The stone stands in grassland in the grounds of Murthly Castle at around 60m OD. It comprises a large rounded block of schist some 2.3m high and approximately 4m in circumference around the base.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the stone and an area around it 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. This is an extension of the area already scheduled, to ensure that any surrounding archaeological deposits are adequately protected.
