Archaeology Notes

NN86NE 4 8762 6526.

(NN 8762 6526) Clach na h'Iobairt (NR)

OS 6" map, Perthshire, 2nd ed., (1900)

The monolith is 3ft 7ins high, 20ins wide and 8-10ins thick. Although its even sides suggest the use of tools, close examination reveals that it is natural. It has been disfigured by bullet-marks.

F R Coles 1908.

Clach na h-Iobairt - 'the stone of the offering'. This perhaps commemorates an offering of land here to the Church of Kilmaveonaig (NN86NE 11)

W J Watson 1926.

This stone, still known as Clach na h-Iobairt, is as described by Coles.

Visited by OS (R D) 12 September 1967.

The monument comprises a standing stone of Neolithic or Bronze Age date which stands at around 130m OD close to the E bank of the River Tilt and measures approximately 1m high by 0.5m by 0.2m.
