A medieval wayside cross situated 120 metres north of Basill. The cross, which is 2.16 metres high, survives as an upright granite shaft with a round 'wheel' head 0.63 metres wide; the principal faces of the head are orientated east-west and each bear a relief equal limbed cross with slightly expanded ends to the limbs. There are traces of a narrow bead around the outer edges of both principal faces. At the neck are two rounded projections, one to either side of the shaft which measures 0.48 metres wide at the base tapering to 0.43 metres wide at the neck, and is 0.2 metres thick at the base tapering to 0.16 metres at the neck. The cross has a distinct lean to the south. The cross is considered to be in its original position. It probably marked a safe fording point of the River Inney 30 metres to the east of the cross. Scheduled.
