Spittal of Glenshee
Standing 1.8m high on the E side of a steep mound directly behind Spittal of Glenshee Church, this stone measures 0.72m in width by 0.28m deep. Approximately 0.8m up from the ground there are semi-circular notches on either side of the stone.
It’s not difficult to appreciate why this stone was erected here – the views along Glen Shee to the NW and SE are stunning. It is interesting to note that before the church was built, this site would have been visible from Diarmid’s Grave.
