The Busta Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 11.6.12

After enjoying a rather nice fish supper in Frankie’s (the most northern chippie in Britain) there was just time to go and have a look at the Busta Stone.

This is a very large prominent stone which can be seen from a distance.

We parked next to the field in which the stone resides and a quick hop over the metal field gate and I was up close and personal. The field was full of sheep with lambs who didn’t seem too pleased to see me there as they were using it as a rubbing post!

This is an attractive stone – looks like it has white ‘pebble dash’ with black speckles.
It is also covered in that light green ‘hairy’ lichen I have seen so much of over the last two weeks.

There are great views over the loch and down the valley.
