Standing Stone / Menhir


Directions - From the centre of Perth, head E across the river, and join the A93 heading N. You will drive through Guildtown, pass the famous Meikleour beech hedge, and the cursus called the Cleaven Dyke before reaching Blairgowrie. Continue on the road that you are on, and it will take you into the centre of town. You will see a triangular grassy area on your right as you approach some traffic lights. Go into the left lane, which will take you left over the River Ericht. The road climbs, and you will pass on your left a turn-off for Glenshee and Braemar. Instead, stay on the road that you are on (now the A926) and leave Blairgowrie to the E. Drumend is approximately 2.0km from the bridge over the Ericht. It is in a field on the left, close to the left-hand (W) boundary, about 150m up the field, but can be quite difficult to see from the road. This is a fast and narrow road, with few places to park. I would suggest either parking on the edge of Blairgowrie and walking the 1.0km or so to the stone, or looking for a farm drive that you can pull into without blocking.
