This site is gradually vanishing thanks to a rubbish dump getting larger and larger. A massive pile of rotten sticks lies nearby, more disturbingly the west stone is slowly being eaten up by a levelling process. Very sad as this site has some spectacular views up and down the valley, even on a day like today.

I went to the farmhouse to ask for an explanation but unfortunately nobody was at home. So I phoned those who need to know e.g. Historic Scotland. Hopefully they will explain how to look after the site to the owner.

I took Nick's advice and walked from the road to view these stones, they are like many of their kind somewhat neglected. The farmer looks at you sort of kindly saying but they are only auld stanes. There is a stretch of fishing river here and you could be quizzed by the factor... hamish Posted by hamish

These stones stand beside a farm building, acting like gateposts for a field entrance. No significant markings on either of them. The farm road to Dunmay branches east from the A93 a couple of miles south of Spittal of Glenshee, crossing a small bridge. Cars with dodgy suspensions should avoid this road like the plague, as it's suitable for tractors or 4X4's only! The road bends to the right about 200m in, and park here at the wide space to ensure farm vehicles are not impeded. The stones are up on a low mound, above what appears to have been an old kiln. The farmer has no problem with people viewing them. nickbrand Posted by nickbrand
