The upper surface of this small boulder is decorated with as many as ten cup and ring marks, some with radial grooves, and a further sixteen individual cup marks. Although some are difficult to see due to weathering and moss the cups are clearly visible with the aid of snow in winter, and the rings and radial grooves can be felt by hand.
The boulder, which measures around 0.91m long by 0.74m wide and 0.34m high, was found on a hill above the old kirk (NT 2452 6303) and was subsequently moved to its current position against the east wall of Glencorse parish church. A second cup and ring-marked stone previously located at the old kirk has since been lost.
