Continuing with Chris's spinning wheel theory for Broomend. This standing stone is found to the north of Inverurie at the Brandsbutt junction. Balquhain is also in the distance, which would mean the chain of stones stretching from Tyrebagger. There is another stone in the vicinity at Dubstone.

The stone can be seen from the road and is 1.5 meters high coming to a fairly pointy peak. A walk of no more than a 100 meters. Good scenery to the northern hills, the River Urie and the Battle of Harlaw monument.
