Field Visit (23 August 1952)

Standing Stone, Airthrey Castle (W.).

This stone stands 700 yds. WNW. of Airthrey Castle, just outside the wood that borders this part of the policies, at an elevation of about 140 ft. O.D. Many years ago the stone, which is of dark grey dolerite, fell down and was broken, and the basal portion, now re-erected (Pl. 3 A [ST 109]), is only 3 ft. 10 in. high; two large fragments, however, still lie beside the base, and the original stone is said (1) to have stood to a height of 9 ft. 4 in. Of a more or less oblong section throughout, there-erected stone measures 2 ft. 10 in. by 1 ft. 10 in. at ground level, swells to its greatest dimensions (3 ft. 2 in. by 1 ft. 9 in.) at a height of 1 ft. 4 in., and diminishes at the top to 2 ft. 2 in. by 1 ft. 3 in. Its major axis lies approximately ENE. and WSW.

Since the date of visit this stone has been removed.

RCAHMS 1963, visited 23 August 1952
