"A standing stone having an appearance very like one of the flanking stones of a recumbent stone circle. It is 6 1/2 feet high, 2 1/2 feet broad and about a foot thick. On its E face is a single cup-mark, 2in diameter and 1/2in deep, 2 feet from the ground on the south edge. The W face has six cups, the largest two being 2in diameter and the others 1 1/2in diameter and 1/4in deep, one of which is only 6 inches from the ground. Additionally there are two doubtful cups about halfway up near the N edge of the stone. The tenants of Cotetown, in 1866, said that they remembered a cairn here, the stones of which were used to build Cotetown. The origin of the name was unknown but the stone was said to be haunted.
J Ritchie 1918; Name Book 1866."
