|Description ||This half-tonne, water worn, pear shaped boulder is now part of a delapidated, otherwise flat-slab, drystone wall ( c.18 Century) 100m N of the Toot Hill enclosure. It lies on the surface of the land but may once have been a way marker for the nearby trackway, possibly prehistoric, that passes several Bronze Age tumuli nearby.|
|This bears no relation to what I would call a recumbent - recumbent has a special meaning in relation to Stones of being a specific part of a stone circle unique to NE Scotland - this is surely just a fallen stone!|
