This Class I symbol stone was discovered along with Rhynie 3 during roadworks near the Plough Inn (at NJ 4985 2702) around 1836 and they were placed beside Howies Inn until they were moved to the centre of the market square in 1864. When the war memorial was built around 1918 the stones were set up flanking a gate at the north-west end of the square, with this stone on the east side.
The stone is very weathered and the carvings are no longer visible however it once featured double disc and Z-rod above a crescent and V-rod.
