Stones included on the itinerary include Sueno’s Stone, Rodney’s Stone (Brodie Castle), and symbol stones at Ballintomb, Inverallan, Advie, Inveraven, Mortlach and Arndilly. A number of these stones are in private ownership and are therefore not readily accessible to the public. Participation in the field trip is by coach only and spaces are limited so advance booking is required. Spaces are limited so early booking is advised. Delegates are advised to bring appropriate footwear, waterproofs and a packed lunch although there will be an opportunity to get something to eat in Grantown-on-Spey.
