This Class I symbol stone is a large slab carved with the full length figure of a fierce-looking man known as Rhynie Man. He’s depicted wearing a belted tunic and is carrying an axe over his shoulder. It was found during ploughing at Barflat farm in 1978 some 40m east-north-east of the Craw Stane and is thought to have originally stood on the crest of the hill’s shoulder. It is now housed in the foyer of Woodhill House and a cast can be seen in the vestibule of the local school.
