Standing Stone. About 100 yards west of the lodge of Strathendry House, on the south side of the roadway from Leslie to Scotlandwell, a large irregularly shaped block of sandstone, 5 feet in height, has been used to form part of the dike. It stands with its main axis almost due east and west and has a slight inclination towards the north. It tapers from the base upwards to a rounded and somewhat pointed top, its broad flat face to the north measuring 5 feet 7 inches across at 2 feet from the ground. There are no sculpturings. The girth at the base is approximately 16 1/2 feet. (See also NO20SW 10 - Four large stones).
