This spectacular stone stands on the sloping western flank of a headland overlooking the coast. It measures 1.45m in breadth from ESE to WNW at the base by 0.38m in thickness, rising to a roughly square top at a height of 3.3m. The NNE face presents a heavily weathered surface, whereas on the SSW the stone is much more angular, probably as a result of the way it has been split off a larger outcrop. Traces of slight scallops along the western edge of this face possibly indicate where wedges were inserted to prize it up. This face is also riven with veins of quartz and feldspar.
