Site Notes

Forsyth/1996, 41--42: `..380 metres north-west of Nether Auquhollie farmstead. .. The Auquhollie stone stands 467 feet above sea level [142 m OD], on the north-west side of a farm-track which forms a field boundary. Though the stone is several miles inland at the head of a valley, because of the configuration of the surrounding hills, it is in fact in sight of the sea, which may be significant in considering the overwhelmingly coastal distribution of the Scottish oghams. There are no associated settlement or early ecclesiastical remains, but the vicinity was favoured for prehistoric ritual activity'.
