I don't recognise the stone but it isn't the 'Naming Stone'. I'll post a shot of the latter.

This stone was said to have been thrown over by a giant in Hoy and landed in the Hill in Orphir.

Always known as the "Giants Stone" by Orphir schoolbairns. Still found my carved initials. Took group of Orphir pupils to the stone few years ago.
