Also known as Balhomie - I called here today to photograph the Cargill Pictish symbol stone built into a rockery at the house. Spoke to the lady there and was told there was another stone there too. In a different bit of the garden, but it was OK to go and take a look. I'm glad I did.

I don't think this stone is in its original position, it's just too well landscaped. I rather think that it may well have been acquired at the same time the Pictish stone was removed from Whitefield Farm. But it is a standing stone, as the three well-defined cup marks point out. A nice surprise as I don't see any reference to it in Canmore. The lady of the house didn't know where it had come from, unfortunately.
