Clovenstone Farm

Natural Rock Feature


This is where folklore and ancient history meet head on. In the field due north is the Camie's Stone and the Clovenstone is a massive rock where various witches, including Isobel Cockie had their cases judged. (fate dealt more likely!) By this time, my sidekick had arrived so the Mad Man climbed up and down for the images. (His better half having more sense brought along some much needed tea!) Looking up and down at this rock, and I know other people feel things at such places, I felt a sense of foreboding and doom. Maybe because of Deystone, various unfortunate witchs, maybe because of an ancient battle between the locals and the Danes. Dunno! Hard to describe, but similar to the feelings I get when I visit Culloden.

Clovenstone is found traveling north of Kintore on the A96, the farm is signposted. Keep going straight, don't turn the rock is to the north (150 meters walk max.) just before Clovenstone farm.
