The Goose Stone is a Class I symbol stone which is carved with a bird, often interpreted as a goose, above a mirror and mirror case.
The stone 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.
In the late 19th century the stone was built into the wall of a steading close to the north-east corner of the farmhouse at North Tillytarmont at NJ 5297 4645 before being removed and transferred to the Marischal Museum in Aberdeen in 1979.
