Standing Continued [continued from page 53]
"Standing Stones, of these the most early of all Monuments. There are several in Kirriemuir, none of which have inscriptions of any kind. The most remarkable in the parish is the Standing Stone, on the hill of Kirriemuir, which has been evidently at some period split into two; one part of it is standing, the other is lying. The standing part is 9 feet in height, above the surface of the ground, at the base of it is 6 feet 6 inches in breadth and at the top it is 4 feet 6 inches: it cannot be less than 3 or 4 feet in the ground; and in the memory of man it tapered towards the top, but the projecting part, has been Knocked off. The lying part of the stone is 12 feet 9 inches in length. Tradition is silent as to the purpose for which it was erected."
