The Carlinwell stone at Airlie, near Kirriemuir, toppled over as the snow, ice and frost from the long cold spell melted away.
The 7ft prehistoric unsculptured standing stone is situated on the crest of a knoll on a farm. Human remains were found underneath the scheduled monument at the end of the 18th century. It is one of a number of standing stones across the country.
Historic Scotland is now looking to carry out an investigative dig of the site, before reinstating the stone.

I think it said there’s going to be a dig, y’know, because it tipped over, basically how much worse can it get. But I may have it mixed up with one of the other megalith articles I posted. [blush]
I think there’s more about that on the original link, but I’m not sure, I posted a few others about megaliths, plus I’m forgetful.
Take a look at my freeper home page. Look at his eyes. You see? LOL. Thats what I mean.
“The stone is a symbol of primordial stroke, a lightning bolt of instantaneous transformation.”
Well that’s an interesting thought, I can see that one.
Really, you don’t have to knock stuff down just to get our attention.
Sorry to have been so bratty, but a temper tantrum seemed like the only solution.
