The two upright stones are 4.4m apart, with their longer axes aligned roughly NNW and SSE. The most northerly stone measures 2.63m in height and 1.35m by 0.35m at ground level. The fallen stone measures 3.75m by 0.8m and 0.3m in thickness. The third stone is almost 3m high and measures l.6m by 0.35m at the base.
