In a level field at the head of Loch Striven and 140m S of Balliemore there are two standing stones some 2m apart. The N stone is a slim slab of schist 2.44m high and up to 0.18m thick; the N side rises alomost vertically but is now damaged, while the S side is slanting, and the top was probably gabled. The S stone is an irregular block now leaning slightly to the E; it is about 1.65m high and includes a conspicuous vein of quartz.
