The Goose Stone is a Class I symbol stone which was discovered while ploughing a field called Donaldstone Haugh on North Tillytarmont farm shortly before 1867, on a promontory at the confluence of the Isla and Deveron. It is one of five stones found in the same field in the vicinity of a square cairn, the others being Tillytartmont 2, Tillytartmont 3, Tillytartmont 5 and Tillytartmont 6.
The stone, which is carved with a bird, often interpreted as a goose, above a mirror and mirror case, was then built into the wall of an outhouse close to the north-east corner of the farmhouse at North Tillytarmont at NJ 5297 4645. It is now in the Marischal Museum in Aberdeen.
