A short distance from the stone circle/kerb/cairn at the Chapel Of Sink is the legendary Ark Stone. Many think, and I agree, that it is the recumbent from the nearby site. It seems very sad that they had to move it.

Head east from the cairn to the fence then head north. Follow the dyke/fence until the corner at which the Ark Stone acts as a meeting place. As usual brilliant, today very cold and damp, views of Bennachie, particularly the Mither Tap.
