NS 79444 92478 The ground of Randolphfield contains two

standing stones. These are connected in oral tradition with a skirmish on Day 1 of the Battle of Bannockburn between Thomas Randolph, Earl of Moray, and Sir Robert Clifford. These stones may have been there prior to the skirmish or have been erected in commemoration of it. At least one

stone (to the SW) was moved in the 20th century ahead of the construction of the current Police HQ. A series of hand dug test pits, excavated 29–31 May 2014, failed to identify either prehistoric or medieval material. However, a slot against the second stone to the NE confirmed that it had not been moved in the recent past and may be in situ.
