The Migvie Cup-Marked Stone has disappeared!

After visiting the Tom Dubh Cairns 800 metres east of Migvie Church with Drew we stopped off at the site of the well-known Migvie Cup-Marked Stone—close by the west end of the neighbouring farmhouse at 'The Glack'.

But it wasn't there!

The verge where this stone formerly stood has clearly been scooped away, the stone with it.

Has the stone been lawfully removed for preservation, or has it simply been stolen?

The stone was last seen by me on October 21, 2013. In view of the fact that the scooped out section of verge has not yet been fully colonised by vegetation, it would seem that the stone's removal was fairly recent.

I have checked with Canmore, but they make no mention of this event.

So answers would be appreciated.
