Formerly also entered as NJ70NE 76.

(Formerly entered as possible standing stone at NJ c. 78 05: reclassified as Cattle Rubbing Stone at cited location NJ 7806 0582). This cattle-rubbing stone, which stands in an arable field about 360m NW of Garlogie House (NJ70NE 138), measures 0.63m in breadth by 0.55m in thickness at ground level and 2.1m in height. The stone is a fragment of a large boulder that has evidently been split. The E side and much of the S side are cleaved surfaces and the SE corner still bears a drill-hole.

Original notes on this stone, dated November 1st 1923, are contained in a notebook belonging to Alexander Keillor that is preserved in the National Monuments Record of Scotland.

Visited by RCAHMS (JRS, IF) 20 August 1996.
