Just to re-iterate whats been said before, there is no where to park. I squeezed into the space before a gate and ran over to the stones. Just a quick five minutes, is all.
First is the big split boulder with a couple of faint cup marks, which I couldn't see. As I walked round it a Hare darted out from it's hiding place, startling me in the process.
The two standing stones are close to each other, no more than ten yards. Around six feet tall, one pointy one flat topped. A small stream runs by them but it was all dried up when I was there. It was very hot and sweaty.
Quickly back to the car and away , no one bothered no one any the wiser. You might not be so lucky.
Then again you might.
If you carry on along the lane instead of going to Crofthead farm house, you can get to the stones from here. Not so wet, no burns to cross.
The two large recumbents are large. One has cup markings on it. Up the field are the two standing stones, and as Winterjc says, you can see as far as the Lomond Hills.
Visited here with my 2 oldest friends Norie of the photos and George. We didn't tell George where we were going - but anyway.
Asked permission from the old couple at Crofthead Farm and went to the stones.
The higher up, north pair of standing stones sit quietly at the side of a stream. I read on the Ancient Scotland website that the tip of the tallest of these two stones may mirror a distant peak in the Lomond Hills on the Southern horizon above the Keillour Forest.
A hundred yards to the south, down the hill are two large boulder type stones which may be the remains of one stone which has been split.
The megalithic culture remained strong in this area - you can visit a giant pictish carved stone inside the church in the village - there is also a full sized replica of this stone which stands in the village.
