This stone has caused chaos as I seem to have chased it all over the place. Even at the end it caused a headache as it had moved from the shed to the garden entrance, being called to the Percylieu Stone with its impressive Pictish markings. Hopefully this is its last move!

Quite a few people to thank for this including the somewhat bemused staff at Leith Hall, Rhynie Man and the Northern Picts. With that it was up to Rhynie via no hospitals.

Went to have a look and as expected found nothing except a hidden barbed wire fence which caused enough damage to my leg to force a visit to Rhynie Health centre, then Foresterhill Hospital in Aberdeen. Fortunately the husband of the nurse at Rhynie lives at Hillhead farm and was kind enough to transport me down to the village. Still...some nice views!
