Modern monolith
Glenmor even has its own monolith, the 'Drovers' Stone' complete with 'Pictish' engravings on it showing the cattle the 17th and 18th century drovers herded through this site en route from Crieff market to the south. According to a plaque beside the stone: 'The lucky or fortunate way to walk around the stone is clockwise. This is from east to west by the south side - to walk the stone anti-clockwise is known as the ominous or unfortunate way.' Thus are legends born.
