Cuppage et al/1986, 336:

Monument

The visible portion of the stone, .9m high x .78m wide, is almost circular in elevation but its shaft is now set deeply in the ground. Both faces are decorated with a Maltese cross within a circle with a 2nd circle lying .04 to .06m outside the 1st. Holes occur at the centre of each cross but these do not form a complete perforation.
