Quernstone

Colour photograph of a quernstone found near Willie Murray's croft near Lonemore, Dornoch. The quernstone is well-shaped with a central hole, flat grinding surface, raised rim and side channel, and is inscribed on one side side '17H' and the other 'M41'. It appears to be made of local sandstone.
