(NH 9317 2043) Bigla's Chair (NAT)

A large fragment of rock said to have been used by Bigla Cumin (early 15th century cf. NH91NW 4) as a 'loupin'-on-stane' in her journeys to and from the church at Duthil. It is also said that on this stone she received the rents of her estate (Mitchell and Drummond 1875) The stone is not unlike a chair in form (NSA 1845)
