The stones looking west
The eastern stone showing cup marks
In the town of Comrie, take the B827 running south until you see a small farm road cutting east (left hand side as you drive south). There you will plainly see the stone known as the Roman Stone (or Western Cowden Farm stones), a strange little setting, consisting of one very large stone, with a pronounced eastern lean, which is known locally as the Roman Stone, a smaller one just beside it then 6 feet east a stone which has at least 20 cup marks on it. I splashed water on this in order to be able to photograph it better (handy hint for those of you who don't know it already - always carry a flask of water for the stones!). This is yet another site where the lazy need not ever leave the car!
