Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 15.6.12

This is a huge stone that you can’t miss!

It is approached via a scenic drive down a single track road south of the A971
Only in Shetland would such a minor road be in such good condition!

The stone is rectangular in shape and the top is covered in ‘hairy’ lichen.
Quartz veins run through the stone.
There are two large slabs of stone and several large boulders near the standing stone.

There are good views to be had up and down the loch.

Well worth a visit if you are ever in the area – top stone!
