A large, almost flat roadside stone in the isolated townland of Toor. The bullaun, or very large cupmark, is on the northern edge of the stone, about 10 cms across and 4 cms deep. There is some folklore attached to the stone here: http://megalithomania.com/show/site/731/the_dailteen_stone_bullaun_stone.htm

The stone is at the beginning of a gated track that leads up into the area of Toor that has the stones circles and other antiquarian curiosities.
