Beinn A'Charra

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 28.5.12

The minor road leading up to the water works is tarmaced and smooth so no worries about the car exhaust on this visit!

The stone is visible from the water works but a quick hop over a barbed wire fence and you are soon up close and personal to this massive stone.

The stone is about 5 metres tall and 1.5 metres wide - covered in green lichen.
In this lighting it looked like a face could be seen in the stone (well spotted Karen!)

From up here there are tremendous, wide coastal views.
This is definitely one to visit when on Uist.
