Standing Stone, Dodlaw Burn, Hownam.
This single standing stone is located on exposed pasture and is
probably associated with nearby burial cairns although these are
difficult to make out in the long grass. The stone measures 0.66
x 0.45 x 0.81m.
Take a minor road south from Hownam, keeping right at the junction
just after the village. Continue past the entrance to Chatto and
stop at the cattle grid and sheep pens. Follow the trail up the
steep slope of Dodlaw, opposite Chatto. The stones are approx
where the track crosses Dodlaw Burn.
On grass verge beside sheep pens/cattle grid.
Although marked as a standing stone, this isolated stone is
probably the remains of a burial cairn as there are numerous
similar remains in the immediate area. At the time of my visit,
the grass was long and the weather fine and sunny, giving a most
pleasant air to the site.
