This is a great stone with a great views. Knock Hill is next door, Ben Rinnes away to the west, Hill of Cairns to the east, Thorax to the North east and Durn Hill to the north, after that its the Moray Firth. This rock is situated on top of Wether Hill and it's name is give away. Many years ago a King would have sat watching his army and another (in these parts normally The Danes) hack each other to pieces. The hill and field to the east is called Battlefield.
