Auchterarder

Auchterarder, Perthshire
Standing Stones
Also known as Easthill

On the outskirts of Auchterarder, at the junction of two minor roads, are three megaliths right by the roadside. Well, two are at the roadside and one is in the middle of the road. Paint marks, scrapes and scratches, and the fact that the stone has obviously been poorly reseated in its socket after a collision bears testament to the fact that the person planning the layout of roads must have been taking far too many of the wrong kinds of drugs.

Of the two stones that are on a bank at the side of the road, one has deep pits on one side that may not be natural, and a carving of a hand on the other.
