The monument comprises the remains of a stone row, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC) and stands on the summit of Rhos y Gelynnen, forming an important element in a wider prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape. The Rhos y Gelynnen Stone Row comprises a row of five standing stones aligned east to west, three upright and two fallen. The total length of the row is 9.1m.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Stone rows are often part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
