Visited 28.7.15

Directions:
South of the A77 along a minor road at Garleffin - a short distance south of the village of Ballantrae.


The stones are easy to spot in the garden of the end bungalow. One stone is in the front lawn, the larger stone is along the side of the house. The stones are approximately 1.5m high and 0.5m wide. The tops of the grey stones are covered in moss. The stones are very easy to see from the road outside the house.

RCAHMS - Canmore


Canmore has the sorry story of these stones, which were moved gratuitously and repeatedly in the 1990s. Now only two of the original eight remain.

Tradition had it that a battle was fought here and the stones were to mark the place where the chieftains fell.
