Archaeology Notes

NS57NW 5 5231 7992.

Standing Stone, Craigmore Cottage. In the front garden of Craigmore Cottage there is a standing stone of local lava measuring 3ft 2ins in height. It tapers towards the top but is otherwise irregular in shape. It seems very doubtful whether this stone is an ancient monument as has been suggested. NS 523 799, visited 17 February 1958

NS 5231 7992. This stone, as described above, is now recumbent beneath bushes in the garden. It is an extremely doubtful antiquity.

Visited by OS (R D) 19 August 1966.

NS 523 799 This stone, which stood about 1m high, is now recumbent; it is unlikely that it was a prehistoric standing stone.
