Archaeology Notes

NJ42SE 21 4802 2486.

(NJ 4802 2486) The two larger in the drawing are at Rhynie ....numerous small cairns at Auchindoir, where the battle between Lulach & King Malcolm appears to have taken place, under one of which the intermediate small stone was discovered. Illustration (Logan 1829) labelled:- 'A stone at Manse of Auchindoir' (illustration shows a broken stone, with a head or face inscribed above a fishes tail).

J Logan 1829.

Now no trace, or local knowledge, of this stone at Manse of Auchindoir. It is possible, though not certain, that this stone was the standing stone at Manse of Auchindoir (NJ42SE 8).

Visited by OS (AA) 16 October 1967.

There is no change to the existing record.

Information from RCAHMS (JRS), 9 October 1996.
