Comet Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir

Comet Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) by Tyrianterror Around 140 metres to the south-east of the Ring o' Brodgar is the monolith known as the Comet Stone.

Standing 1.75 metres high (5ft 9in), the Comet Stone stands on a low oval platform measuring around 14 metres (45ft) in diameter and about 80cm (31.5 inches).

The monolith appears to have once been part of a group of stones, the only evidence of which are the stumps of two broken stones.
