NS8183 : Standing stone on Toptowie Hill

taken 7 years ago, near to Dunipace, Falkirk, Great Britain

Standing stone on Toptowie Hill
Standing stone on Toptowie Hill, taken 7 years ago
This stone is not particularly large, but its position on the hilltop makes it fairly conspicuous from a distance. Like a similar stone located nearby (NS8183 : Standing stone near Toptowie Hill), it may not be of any great antiquity; see the description in Canmore: LinkExternal link

[My thanks to Geoff Bailey (of Falkirk Museum), who tells me that this stone is thought to be a seventeenth-century boundary stone.]

The two stones are not far apart (about 310m), and each can easily be seen from the other.

Doghillock Farm is visible in the background of the photo. For a view of the hill on which this stone stands, see NS8183 : Toptowie Hill.
