(NN 9853 5112) Clach Glas (NR)

OS 6" map, Perthshire, 2nd ed., (1902)

Clach Glas, or the Grey Stone, is slab-like in form, slim when seen from the SW and presenting a broad face to the S, on which, near the centre, are two good cup marks. At one time, it is said locally, 'quantities of stones were to be seen lying about the ground close to the Clach Glas and on its S and E.'

F R Coles 1908.

A standing stone 2.0m high x 1.0m x 0.3m, oriented N-S and with two cup marks on its E face. There is a large rounded boulder 2.0m away but it is not an antiquity.

Revised at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (B S) 17 January 1975.

Scheduled as Clach Glas, Westhaugh of Tulliemet.
