|Description ||Luath's Stone in Aberdeen shire at NJ641149 is on the other side of Green Hill from Whitehill Stone Circle.
It is an impressive standing stone - some ten feet tall with the broad sides facing East-West.
The West side supports some amazing lichen - proof of the air quality!|
|From the County Archeologist
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding the standing stone called
This stone is said to commemorate Lulach, King of Moray, a stepson of
Macbeth; killed near Rhynie in 1058. It is in a prominent position, yet in
a poor one if it represents the remains of a stone circle. Its sheer size
also suggests it is a commemorative stone and not merely a boundary stone.
The name but not the tradition is known locally.
Apart from the above we have no further information on this stone.
