The Clach a' Mheirlich (literally, the "Thief's stone") or Rosskeen Stone is a standing stone in a field near Rosskeen, Easter Ross, Scotland.

The stone itself is Bronze Age in origin, but has on it three incised Pictish-style symbols barely visible on the surface of the stone, making it a Class I Pictish symbol stone.
