Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Newtonhill.
On a knoll at OS 574436, and next to the boundary fence of an arable field, there is a slightly pointed flat-sided tapered standing stone. It is roughly 2 feet x 1 foot near the top and almost 3 feet high and appears to be a survivor of the side of a passage entrance at the east of a robbed cairn. There are a few sunken kerb stones in the shape of a circle, inside which stands this stone. <1>
