This great standing stone is located on a small local ridge on high ground with
excellent views west-north-east and  good views south. This granite boulder is 1.92m
in height at NW, with a rectangular base. It stands on a tussock 0.15m above the rest
of the field. At the base of the stone are a number of small stones which are lichen
covered. On the flat NE side of the stone, near the top, a cross has been carved, with
the inscription 'IHS' below. The lower stem of the cross rests on the cross bar of the
H. This could represent the 'Christianising' of a Pre-Christian site.
