Store of Peebles Museum.
A rough block, evidently intended to stand upright.. The inscribed stone `lay until 1890, in association with a cairn of stones, on the hill-side about 220 yds. WNW. of the walled enclosure on the left bank of the Newholm Hope Burn...in that year it was transferred to the enclosure and about 1934 it was removed to Peebles Museum. By that date the cairn had been demolished, but its position is probably marked by a circular setting of stonework which can be seen in the position just stated, and in which there lies a concrete replica stone'.
Macdonald/1935--36, 36: `It seems to have been first noticed about 1890 by Robert Welsh Anderson, son of the shepherd on Kirkhope Sheep farm...on the instruction of his master, Mr Simon Linton of Glenrath, Anderson brought it 300 yards down the hill and placed it within a railed enclosure, where it remained until quite recently, when...its was transferred to the shelter of the Peebles Museum'.
