You know how some stones just get you and some stones just don't? This is the latter.

It has been secured into the ground with a neat ring of concrete and exhibits itself more like a farm implement than a stone of wonder.

How sad!

Great location though, with the the ridge of the Campsie Fells creating its northern horizon.

A 1.2m high stone clearly visible from the A891.

A cremation urn was found at its base when the stone was re-erected in 1982.
