The RCAHMS record says:

"Standing stone, 0.95m high by 0.8m wide by 0.25m thick, surrounded by a level layer of packing stones.

Clach Bioreach means the sharp or pointed stone. The top of the stone has been broken, so it must have been taller, and possibly pointed. The name was given to us by Mr and Mrs Alastair MacKay, Achmore.
