Chapel O'Sink



"In the large and almost complete circle at Cothiemuir, in the parish of Keig, the recumbent stone is of peculiar rounded shape, and has numerous hollows upon its surface, caused by weathering. Two of these on the outside, rather larger than their fellows, are known as the " Devil's Hoofmarks," their shape resembling the mark of a cloven hoof.
A short distance, some 200 yards, from the Chapel o' Sink lies the Ark Stone, very likely the recumbent stone of the circle, which would help to account for its unusual name".
