Parish of Errol -- Sheet 87 No. 11 -- Trace 5

[Note] -- Similar to the large stone at the village Hawkstane just within the boundary
of the parish of St. Madoes, are two others in this parish, both in elevated
and conspicuous situations, the one on the west near Clashbennie and
the other in the north-east near Inchmartin. They are both quite Solitary and
without any mark of art, so large as not to have been easily conveyed to their present
situation by human contrivance, and yet in such a position as to lead to the inference
that they were intended to be monumental - intended to mark a place of importance or
to perpetuate the resemblance of some memorable event. -- New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] of Perthshire page 384-5
