INVERLAIDNAN HILL STONE
Type and Period (1)
- MARKER STONE (Post Medieval - 1560 AD? to 1900 AD?)
- None recorded
This stone, on the S side of the track, is possibly that mentioned (Salmond 1938) at the top of the ascent as being one of those marking a 5 mile stretch. However, that marker stone is more likely to be the one visible 118m further W.
J B Salmond 1938.
Visited by OS November 1966.
A project to survey and record archaeological features at Inverlaidnan and Sluggan (originally named Inchluin) was undertaken by NOSAS members in 2018.
Site 34. A stone close to the south side of the military road and aligned with it measures 0.7m height x 0.8m width x 0.40 thick. Confusingly this stone may have been previously identified as the Inverlaidnan Hill Stone/Marker stone (Canmore ID: 139468, HER ID: MHG34346) (see entry for site 35). <1>
