[Asterisked note:]
*Mr. Finlay M.P. [Member of Parliament] remembers when this stone rocked
and terms it a Rocking stone - but it is evidently
a glacial boulder water worn at its base.
The superstition is that it was thrown by one
witch from Buchailean hill against another -
which is so far interesting that it confirms

loose stones forming the supposed Hill Fort there
[Initialled] J.B. Lt.Col. [Lieutenant Colonel]
