The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). It comprises a large upright stone, triangular in plan and measuring 1.3m on the N face, 1.2m wide on the SE face and 1.7m wide on the W face, standing to a height of 2.45m. The top of the stone leans to the W and there are packing stones, or clearance stones, evident around its base.
