Full Description

A large stone known as the Clach Eiteag in Ardgay.

In 2014 ARCH provided a number of courses, field trips and other activities exploring and researching the remains of the 19th century engineer, road and church builder Thomas Telford. A project was undertaken in Kyle of Sutherland, during which many sites, not all related to Telford, were visited and photographed by participants. A plaque pn the stone reads: 'The Clach Eiteag. This stone is said to have been moved from parish to parish in former times. As it marked the site for the local market. By the eighteenth century a fair, the Feill Eiteachan was regularly held during November in the parish of Kincardine for the sale of cattle and farm produce. This plaque is presented in memory of Willie Cooper, for years a devoted councillor and much loved elder of the parish of Kincardine. Oct. 1871.' <1>
