Mid Field

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 15.6.12

From Hamnavoe (B9074) take the minor road south to the hamlet of Bridge End.
Take the left fork after the telephone box and the stone is in a field on your left. Easily spotted and access is via a simple hop over the fence.

This is a beautiful area of Shetland and is well worth a visit.

In my humble opinion this is the best standing stone on Shetland.

It is approx 2.5m high x 1.5m across and covered in masses of ‘hairy’ lichen

The stone is in a stunning location (ignoring the nearby buildings) with fantastic views of lochs and mountains.

Great stone – great spot.
In a word – visit!
