Description
The Niddrie House Standing Stone is 1.50m high x 1.00m wide and 0.50 thick at base. The stone is comprised of well weathered conglomerate and has numerous flutes or channels running vertically. There are also a number of possible cup marked over it's surface. Whether these are natural or artificial has not been determined.

Directions
The stone is located near the junction of Greendykes Road and Niddrie House Avenue, Edinburgh in the south east of the city, between an old graveyard and a small utility building. A street map of Edinburgh is recommended.

Parking
By roadside along Greendykes Road.

Fieldnotes
Not much to say about this stone, although it was once believed to be lost but still hangs on in there, despite the urbanisation all around. The old graveyard immediately to the north may have some lost connection with this stone.
