Glencaird. House. Carved stones
Built into the front gables of Glencaird house near
the apex are two carved stones said to have
been taken from the old house of Eschonchan.
The stone on the westmost of the gables bears within
a circular moulding, the date 1694 beneath
the initials I MK. and A H with armorial bearings
two ravens transfixed by an arrow above a left
hand appaumé. The stone on the other gable

compartment is charged heraldically (see "Harper"

Each stone is about 2' square.
