|Description ||Situated on the Tullibardine road leading NW from Auchterarder, this is an interesting group. The most obvious is a single out on a grassy traffic island but there are another two in dense undergrowth at the side of the road. The single is heavily girdled, and very easy to access all round, tilted heavily to the east. The other two were almost covered by brambles, so had to be cleared (Scottish Megarack Group meeting) The NE stone has four large, strange gouges on the northernmost face, but little else of distinction. The SW stone, however, Scott maintained had a handprint on the south face. And there was indeed a handprint, faded but still clearly delineated, a medium sized left hand pointed downwards with the thumb straight down. Very interesting, and unusual. Worth a visit for this alone. This is the single stone, showing the girdle mark.|
|The Canmore Database of the RCAHMS lists only two standing stones - those on the field edge so it is likely that that this one has been re-erected. RCAHMS calls this site Easthill.|
