A few yards north of the glebe lies a huge block of stone (supposed four tons weight)
having a square excavation in the middle of it in which formerly stood a kind of
obelisk. This shaft was broken at a remote period. Afterwards it was brought down
to the church to replace the lintel of the "queer" door and by this means was mutilated
still more to bring it into shape. It is now built into the front wall of the new
church. No trace of its origin or object can be discovered. The side now exposed to view
is covered with human figures rudely carved in low relief of which the most
entire is David playing on the harp. - New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] of Forfarshire p. [page] 546
