There is a stone – the Craw Stane – up the hill from Rhynie that has incised on one face a salmon and what is sometimes called the ‘Pictish Beastie’ No-one has the foggiest what the purpose of these stones was. There used to be hundreds of them but farmers and builders used them, incorporated them into their byres and walls with little regard for what they stood for. Had these farmers and builders committed their sacrilegious acts when the Druids held sway, they would have been incorporated into the rituals that these stones were part of and their blood would have compensated for their insensitive lack of reverence.
