Description

The monument is a standing stone, measuring 1.5m high, by 1.1m wide, by 0.4m thick, standing near the edge of the old A9 road. It was first scheduled in 1964 but only the stone itself was protected; the present re-scheduling rectifies this.

Standing stones were erected in a number of periods, but the majority are believed to have been erected in the Neolithic or Bronze Age periods, between 3000BC and 1000BC.

The area to be scheduled measures 10m in diameter, centred on the stone, to include the stone and an area around it in which traces of activity associated with its use may survive, as marked in red on the attached map.

About Scheduled Monuments

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for the designation of buildings, monuments, gardens and designed landscapes and historic battlefields. We also advise Scottish Ministers on the designation of historic marine protected areas.

Scheduling is the way that a monument or archaeological site of national importance is recognised by law through the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979.

We schedule sites and monuments of national importance using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The description and map showing the scheduled area is the legal part of the scheduling. The additional information in the scheduled monument record gives an indication of the national importance of the monument(s). It is not a definitive account or a complete description of the monument(s). The format of scheduled monument records has changed over time. Earlier records will usually be brief and some information will not have been recorded. Scheduled monument consent is required to carry out certain work, including repairs, to scheduled monuments. Applications for scheduled monument consent are made to us. We are happy to discuss your proposals with you before you apply and we do not charge for advice or consent. More information about consent and how to apply for it can be found on our website at www.historicenvironment.scot.
