Cup Marked Stone


It is commonly said that all the heirs of Balvarran were christened
at the stone, a new cup or basin being made for each infant, but that
General Reid was not so christened: at his baptism in the house a silver
bowl was used, with the disastrous result that there were no more male
heirs and the family died out.
From the article by John Dixon at
in the 1920/21 volume of the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
