This stone sits on the highest part of the field and is a conspicuous local landmark and
there are panoramic views all round. The stone is 1.65m in height and is roughly
rectangular in plan at the base and is 0.72m long on the NE side, 0.97 at S, 0.61m at
SW & 0.71m at N. It is orientated NE - SW. It seems to be well embedded and sits 0.1m
above the animal trampled lower area which rings the base of the stone. There are a
few small stones embedded at the south of the stone.
