Newton Standing Stone

The Newton Stone is one of two standing stones in the grounds of Newton House, Aberdeenshire. Both were relocated from Shevock, a mile (1.5 km) to southeast, and are 2.05m (6¾ feet) in height. The Newton Stone shows traces of Ogam writing together with another unknown script, while the second is a Pictish symbol stone featuring a well-defined serpent and circular, perhaps celestial, pattern. A 2006 book Tayos Gold claimed the circular pattern was a depiction of the birth of the solar system recorded by alien visitors.
