The Carrick Stone
About The Carrick Stone
The Carrick Stone is a scheduled ancient monument, shaped like a Roman altar, standing in what is now the New Town area of Carrickstone. All traces of an inscription on the 2,000-year-old standing stone have been worn away. According to local tradition, Robert the Bruce, King of the Scots and also Earl of Carrick, planted his standard here before the Battle of Bannockburn.
