Cross-decorated Stone, Crois Bheinn: Propped up beside the old track that runs over Crois Bheinn from Drimnin to Loch Teacuis, on the highest point of the route, there is a roughly fashioned and battered cruciform stone, fractured down the centre, it measures 0.61m in height by 0.51m in greatest width.

On what was presumably the front (a - on RCAHMS illustration) there is a cross within the remains of a ring, both in relief, while on the back (b) is a sunken Greek cross. Nothing is known about the history of this stone, but the fact that it appears to have given its name to the hill ('Cross Peak') indicates the antiquity of the site.

RCAHMS 1980, visited 1973.
