Towards the foot of the hillfort are a two stones. One is in a standing position, sub rectangular in nature and standing over a metre tall. It has no obvious markings on any of its faces. The second stone is lying face down just a short distance from the standing stone and again has no obvious marking on its visible face. The position of the standing stone would suggest some sort of marker guiding the traveller towards the rampart entrance of the fort. There are other stones up towards the hill summit, which could suggest a line of stones once existed.
