The pair of monoliths stands on a low cairn covered with moss and grass. The cross pillar is the taller of the two. Seen from the northeast.


In the idyllic setting of Poisoned Glen, not far from the Dunlewey Church, is this cross pillar. It stands in pair with another slender monolith that has no markings.
Both the stones stand on a small cairn partly covered with moss and low grass. The ground around is very soft and boggy.
The stone with the cross is 1.19 metres tall, 24 centimetres wide and 8 centimetres thick. The ringed cross is carved on the west (270°) face, and it measures 29 centimetres of height at 14 centimetres of width.

The cross pillar is within a private property, at the end of this boggy field, and the permission must be sought before entering the place.
