    Bizarre. It's a fair way into the trails too and I wouldn't have thought your average ned could be bother walking that far.

    What's next, rope/ wire tied between trees across the trail... :roll:

    We should be so lucky. People who do things like that should be strung up by their balls!!!

    Doesn't look like someone could have pushed that over. I don't know how near any of the fire roads it is, but I wonder if someone reversed into it in a car or truck?

    Kin hell that must have taken some force to knock over. I have never been to the area and I dont know how far it is from the road but is it likely someone knocked it over with a car ?

    yeah, read about this in my local paper today - real shame - It took 6 months to sculpt and these morons vandalise it in one night :(

    Where the stane is located, it wouldn't be possible to access it by car.
  • How the hell can anyone get pleasure out of doing that? Real shame.

    was down @ Kirroughtree today and saw that the FC had removed the Gem stane, lets hope that it can be repaired, Loch Bruntis just didn't look the same with an empty spot where the Stane used to sit...
