From Craigs standing stone head east following the wall and this stone come into view, the field almost won the award from me of Scotlands muddiest field but was later trounced by Skeroblin . A good stone with one hunched shoulder, strangely hidden from its neighbour. the stone is placed between two large rock outcrops . postman Posted by postman

A standing stone in an arable field measuring 1.1m by 0.4m at the base, rises with a slight taper to a maximum height of 2.1m. The E face of the stone is smooth, but the W face and the two sides are rough and uneven, while the top, which is otherwise level, rises to a rounded peak at the N end.
