The Maiden Stone, a Pictish standing stone near Inverurie in Aberdeenshire, Scotland (circa 8th century AD). Local legend states the daughter of the Laird of Balquhain made a bet with a stranger that she could bake a bannock faster than he could build a road to the top of Bennachie. The prize would be her hand. The stranger was the devil.  The maiden lost the bet, and God turned her to stone.  The notch in the rock is where the devil grasped her shoulder as she ran from him.
