We visited the site on 24th June 2005. The stone lies ca. 100m. north of the "Ormaig Walk" as described in the Isle of Ulva visitors' guide. We didn't climb the fence to get closer.

The Canmore database gives the following description from a visit in 1972:
"A recumbent stone, formerly erect measuring 2.6m in length and 2.7m in girth at the base, which is triangular in shape. The sides of the stone are almost straight and what has been the top is pointed."
The Ordnance Survey field surveyor found in August 1995 that it had been put upright.
