Amongst the more mysterious feature of the landscape of the Perthshire and Angus glens landscape are what are marked on today’s larger scale maps as ‘Standing Stones’, monolithic blocks often located in the middle of fields or by the roadside. We know little about their history or purpose – whether they were erected as boundary markers or as objects with ritual significance. Some have had stories woven around them, while others such as that at Balnabroich in Strathardle, serve as useful scratching posts for cattle.
