Hi Scotty,

Seem to recall that the 'locals' you mention got taken to court a year or two back for trying to block access to this one. They're only 'local' if by 'local' you mean from around 250 miles south of Fife. They lost, and the right of way was re-established in court. There's a bit of a story attached to this stone, but I'm blowed if I can recall it off the top of my head. I'll dig around and post it if I can find the reference! Nice one anyway, the MacDuffs were Thains of Fife (one of the 7 Thains) and held the right to crown the Ard Righ. Believe it was one of their wives did the business for the Bruce as her husband was otherwise engaged in a cell somewhere south of Fife at the time.
