Tapered slab with bevelled edge, 1.79m long by 0.48m wide at the head.
Below a foliated cross and flanked by plant scrolls is a two handed sword of the type known as a claymore. The quillons end in quatrefoil and there are slight traces of decoration on the scabbard. The incised inscription runs up the right hand bevel and finishes on the upper edge of the stone.
This stone has the earliest known representation of a claymore.
