The RCAHMS record says "A standing stone, rectangular in section and measuring 2ft by 1ft 2ins and 5ft 8ins high, facing NNW-SSE, stands in the corner of an enclosed wood some 200 yds ENE of the gamekeeper's house at Forse."

The Official Visitor in the 1960s wasn't too impressed and said they thought it was nothing more than a cattle-rubbing stone. However, the 1980s Visitor thought it had a good chance of being prehistoric.
