This is as the Southern writes it - and he pronounces it Croft'an'righ, placing the acccent with Syllable 'an' -- Could we follow the Gaelic in Perthshire and write it 'Croft an Righ'
No when not written so in the locality

From the idea entertained of this Stone of its being of a Druidical origin it is apparently a memorial of some event of ancient days. Such in a rude age was the only means of transmitting to posterity some record of an event which was thought worthy of remembrance. But it appears that there is no tradition of true origin of the above stone. My idea is that it is one of the Class of memorials usually called Cat Stanes so common in many parts of Scotland. It had therefore better be written simply "Standing Stone" in Old English.
