Standing Stone / Menhir


Ha! No bullocks today, only sheep - so over the gate and in. This is a pretty impressive lump of rock, stood on a couple of large flat stones and fenced in. The stone looks genuine enough, with streaks of quartz running through it.

My local informant tells me that the cairn was said to have marked the spot of a battle back in the 1450's between the Ogilvies and Lindsays, but the stone would appear to have been here from long before that date.
