White Cow Wood

Chambered Cairn


In 'Report on Stone Circles of the North-East of Scotland' in PSAS v38 (1904) the author talks of this circle, but also mentions a stone elsewhere called the 'White Cow of Crichie' -

In the Buchan, this curious appellation is frequently given to great stones, presumably, as this one, of white quartz.

Are these the white cows? like the bovine equivalent of the 'grey wethers' of Wiltshire?

Could this be related to stories about the white stones at Logie Newton and Auchmaliddie? drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
