A massive hog-backed boulder, the most impressive of the fourteen cup-marked stones on Killocraw farm which form the largest concentration in Kintyre. It measures 3.7m by 1.8m and protrudes 0.5m above ground and bears at least fifty cups, some of them unsually large, the maximum diameter being 0.18m and the maximum depth being 0.044m. In two cases a cup is accompanied by an incomplete ring, and three of the cups have short gutters leading from them.
