Marnoch Lodge

Standing Stone / Menhir


The former Church Of Scotland minister at Aberchirder the Rev. Bob Jones told me about this stone as well as the history of various circles in the area. Canmore says it might be fairly modern but he insisted that it was the real thing and possibly might have been removed from nearby Marnoch Church or Bellmans Wood.

It overlooks the River Deveron and is in prime stone circle country so the old chap is probably correct. Certainly people in the village of Aberchirder are keen to emphasise its age.

It stands at a good six feet on height. Leave Aberchirder going south, Foggieloan to us locals, on the A97 immediately turning left after crossing the River Deveron at the Marnoch Bridge.

That's it, Mr D.

Get it down before it's gone and preserve the folk knowledge. Priceless.
