Leave Inverurie going north on the Brandsbutt road going towards the A96 stopping opposite Conglas farm. The stone, which stands at 1.1 meters was noted by Coles, is in the middle of a field to the west of the farm on the lower slopes of Dilly Hill.

Brilliant views of Bennachie especially the Mither Tap which it seems to be aligned with. Perfect symmetry almost. Also close by is the River Urie, the stones at Drimmies and Dilly Hill as well as Balquhain RSC.

Conglas 2 (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Taking the Brandsbutt road out of Inverurie I walked to Conglas farm. There I walked through the farm and underneath the railway. The stone looks like it is aligned to the Miter Tap but is in Prehistoric central. Balhalgardy is on top of the hill in front, Balquhain is to the valley heading west, Dilly Hill behind, Barra Hill east along with many circles and standing stones all with a view of Bennachie. Today the walk was pleasant as the ground was frozen, if not this would be a mud bath. Probably about 2 miles walk, there and back.

As night came down a crescent moon parked itself above the stone. The atmosphere of the place changed, the silence beautiful, time seemed to stand still. Perhaps all of these years ago it did.
