Nether Cluny

Standing Stone / Menhir


Nether Cluny can be found about 11/2 miles south of Dufftown near a single track road. From the square, on the A941, go past Mortlach Church (signposted) out of the town until Nether Cluny farm is reached. One stone remains situated about a 1/4 mile, downhill, in a field behind the farm.

The 4 feet stone has excellent all round views and hasn't failed in it's duties as cattle still use the park. To make doubly sure whoever re-erected it concreted the base to make sure it wouldn't move in a hurry.

Make sure to leave enough time to visit the many local distilleries!

Modern folklore....... we're lucky madmen like Drew still visit these places and keep the lore alive.
