The Lochmaben Stone A visible reminder of the ancient history of the district is the "Lochmaben Stone" which can be seen on the Solway shore near the farmland of Old Graitney.

The stone marks the spot where Mabon, a tribal leader, fell in battle around A.D. 600. The stone was called "Clock Maben", that is Maben's stone, and eventually became Lochmaben Stone.

During the many battles between the Scots and English the Lochmaben Stone was a recognised assembly place for the troops.
