near to Oyne, Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

Coronation Stone, Oyne Fork
Coronation Stone, Oyne Fork
Unmarked on the maps, this little gem is tucked away at the side of the road junction on the very busy A96.
Someone knows it is here and keeps the grass cut around the spot.
It is simply inscribed:
E II R
Coronation
2nd June 1953

Not sure on the hills in the background, but looking in the direction of Bennachie and Mither Tap or possibly Millstone Hill?
