The first major hike after the easing of the lockdown for us sheltered types in Scotland found me in Perthshire getting permission to park at Middleton Farm.

Walk through the farmyard and onto the Cateran Trail, at the first corner there is a gate which goes onto a long disused track. Follow this until the trees at the top of the hill are reached then head west. The stone is sheltered by a large tree.

The large slab has 12 cup marks, the biggest of which are 6cm wide by 1.5cm deep.
