Pictish Symbol Stone Tillytarmont 3 Rothiemay.

Through various research I have found that the incised Pictish stone known as Tilytarmont 3 was possibly the stone that was discovered by Dr Grant of Huntly in the Spring of 1867. Dr Grant unfortunately died only a few months later and  information regarding the stone and it's position was scant. The stone was rediscovered in 1954 by Mr Whyness Riddoch of Whitestones, Rothiemay and Mr James Forbes lying covered in undergrowth beside the pathway to the old wooden Avochie suspension bridge (sadly no longer there) that crosses the River Deveron at Donaldson Hough. Later on that same year (1954) and by the permission of the Huntly Historian the stone was removed in case of further damage to the garden of Whitestones, Rothiemay where it still remains. The stone is badly weathered but shows the incised Crescent, Z rod and Concentric Rings.
