The cursing stone, indeed! Thanks for uploading this big enough so we can read it, Anita. :D

Hi whoelius :) This is a copy of a stone that had a curse inscribed on it in 1525. It was a curse put on the Reiver Families by the Archbishop of Glasgow. It's said that since this stone has been placed here it has brought misfortune to the City and there are calls for it's removal. Regards, Anita

The light and composition is super. What sort of misfortune has it brought to the city? Regards, Joce

Is the text carved into the stone or painted on it? It is a beautiful stone but the sentiment is somewhat malicious...

A.SKINNER on October 26, 2010

Hi Joce, the words are carved into the stone, it is malicious :{ there is a saying over here that "the pen is mightier than the sword" these words are very cutting and not what you would expect from a man of the cloth. Cheers. Anita
