The western stone measures 1.3m high by 0.7 wide and 0.7 deep. It is boulder like with a pointed top. The eastern stone measures 1.3m high by 1.0m wide and 0.5m deep and has a more rouded top but is thinner in cross section.

Standing stones are often part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
