Standing Stone / Menhir


I don't know how many times I've tried to find this stone but at last it has been found. One of old Fred Cole's stones it is a superb stone, once part of a circle consisting of 3 stones. Very similar in shape to the nearby Mill of Carden stone. Sadly it met the same fate as it is left at the corner of a field. I think this stone has had a few changes of position but I'm glad it remains in one piece.

Its height is 2.2, breadth 1.4 and width 1.1 coming to a tapered top. Unbelievably, for me, the top of the stone can be seen from the road. Heaven knows how many times I've walked past here!!!

Park at the Dunnydeer Hillfort and head west, entering the field after the cottage to the north and follow the wall west. it took a long time to find, hopefully someone might be kind and find the right people to put it back up.
