|Description ||Peathill Stone
Unfortunately winter wheat had already been sown so this was as close as I could get.
According to RCAHMS it is the remanant of a circle rather than just a stone :-
This grey, granite stone, 6 feet 7 inches (1.75m) high and over 10 feet (3.05m) in girth, is the remnant of a stone circle (New Statistical Account [NSA] 1845) perhaps 45 to 50 feet in diameter. An urn was found almost underneath the stone some time ago (before 1866) (Name Book 1866). It is remarkable that the corn grows very luxuriant around this solitary pillar to a distance of fifteen yards, and has always been eighteen inches higher than the crop immediately beside it.
NSA 1845; Name Book 1866; F R Coles 1902.
