Archaeology Notes

NN91NE 12 9771 1643.

A standing stone about 6ft (1.83m) high, supposed to be the remains of a 'Druidical Temple' (no evidence given).

Name Book 1860.

A standing stone with no evidence of a stone circle.

Visited by OS 3 August 1967.

Air photographs show that this standing stone is surrounded by a possible enclosure, defined by the faint cropmarks of a ditch, c. 21-22m in diameter and 1m-2.5m in width. The stone is in the S sector of the enclosure, just inside the line of the ditch, which is apparently interrupted. Probable henge.

A F Harding and G E Lee 1987.

There is no change to the existing record.

Visited by RCAHMS (JRS, IF), October 1995.

Scheduled with NN91NE 21 as Haugh of Aberuthven, standing stone, enclosure and ring-ditch.
