Details Cup-marked stone. A rough boulder, called the -Girdle Stane of Dunnichen- bears prehistoric carving and was used as a boundary stone for the former parishes of Rescobie to the north and Dunnichen to the south. This is also the former boundary between the lands of Dunnichen and Ochterlony (Balmadies). The stone is about 1.5m high and 0.9m wide, having on its face a circle about 76cm in diameter and a smaller circle about 15cm across, this smaller circle being a cup and ring mark. It is probably the -Grey Stone- referred to in a note of about 1280 concerning the marches of Dunnichen. It is flush with the ground and raised slightly (0.1m) on the east side.
