Granite erratic, Dudmaston
There are many granite boulders in the woods at Dudmaston and many more have been cleared from farmland. Some were used as millstones. The origin has been quoted as several places including the unlikely Ailsa Craig. The most likely origin is either Creetown in Galloway or the Criffel/Dalbeattie area.
