From as far back in time as can be remembered until the present day, the mysterious standing stone, Granny Kempock, has influenced major and minor historical events in Scotland. Locals tell stories of how a witch was turned to stone and is still seeking to escape from her internment, but is there any truth to these tales? Nigel Rennie explores the evidence.
