Ronald and Marjorie Kereszturi McComb in front of "Cockstane" Oct 1998

The story about the Cockstane has its origins in an old tale about a tax collector from Athol that came to collect the poultry that was due his master, from an old widow in Glenshee. What happened is the tax collector took the whole flock. .

The widow fled and told her plight to John McComy Mor the 7th chief. John was enraged and set out after the tax collectors. He pursued them with such vigor that they ran and left the flock behind. .

As the story goes one of the escaped rosters flew onto a large boulder and began to crow. Thus this is supposidly how the Cockstane recieved its name..

The MacThomas Clan meets at this site every year in August.
