Field Visit (June 1971)

NS 965 153. Standing Stone, Crookedstone, Elvanfoot: this stone stands in the middle of a level field 160m N of Crookedstane farmhouse. Measuring 1.2m by 0.6 at the base, with the long axis aligned NE and SW, it now leans towards the NW at an angle of 45 from the horizontal, so that its pointed top stands only 1.4m above ground level, although the visible part of the stone extends to 1.8m in length; there is evidence (Wilson, ii (1937), 258) that the tilting of the stone is not a recent occurrence. The surface of the stone is covered with natural cup-shaped hollows caused by weathering.

RCAHMS 1978, visited June 1971
