Wester Cowden Farm

Stone Row / Alignment


Visited here today on a bitterly cold day. The Roman Stone - the big one, as Mr Brand mentions below - leans at an alarming angle over it's smaller neighbours. The cup-marks on the flat stone are quite shallow, but very obvious nonetheless.

The name Roman Stone presumably comes from the fact that in the field nearby was a Roman camp.

Historic Scotland lists this as the remains of a stone circle, but as Fred Coles pointed out in 1911, there is a lack of any evidence to suggest that these stones ever formed part of a circle.
