Full Description

There is a cup-marked stone lying flat on the ground, a little of the east of the bridge over the Nairn at Clava on the road from Culloden Muir to Leanach and Clava, on the waste moorland which stretches to the right hand there, still unreclaimed.
It is a block of grey granite 8 feet long, from 3 to 4 feet broad at the base, narrowing in breadth to 1 foot 3 inches at the top, and 2 feet 1 inch thick.
There are five cups along its top. One of them shows traces of an encircling ring, now greatly obliterated, with two smaller cups at the ends of its more distinct portion on the right.
W Jolly 1882.

No trace of this stone was found during field investigation and local enquiries proved negative.
Visited by OS (W D J) 24 June 1962.
