Blackhill, Hazelbank, Lanarkshire

Standing Stone (destroyed): OS Grid Reference – NS 829 442

No longer here, but about 200 yards north of the old farmhouse of Blackhill (with its ancient tumulus still in attendance across the road) could once be seen a decent standing stone, “fully six feet high.” It seems that this was sadly uprooted sometime before 1954.
