Stane Park Drybridge, North Ayrshire

At Drybridge, near Kilmarnock, in a field known as Stane Park, is a large single standing stone.
It stands about nine feet tall and is about fifteen feet in circumference.
It is quite square, with a couple of rough faces and a couple of very flat faces. The faces point quite neatly towards the four cardinal points.
The flat faces show signs of cup marks, but also similar marks where stones and pebbles may have fallen out of the sandstone matrix of the monolith. The two are most clearly distinguished where there is a stone-hole within a cup mark.
A stone hammer was found in the same field during the 1840s.
