Giant's Grave, Enochdhu

Standing Stone / Menhir


To many people obey the 'No Access' or 'Police No Parking' and thereby help keep these sites from being visited. I, on the other hand within reason, ignore these stupid requests and march straight on, after all fences are supposed to be jumped. After knocking at the door, no reply, I headed into the garden. Plenty of room for the car in the entrance.

I'd never heard of The Giant's Grave until stopping in the villlage of Kirkmichael (petrol, shop, cafe, nice place good food) for some much needed lunch. Asking for some local information from the local people is always a good thing and hasn't failed me yet. Some fantastic info (I'll chase that up next week) was freely given including info about the Giant's Grave.

A very nice stone standing at 1.7 meters high sits at the top of an almost 6 meter mound, e.g. The Giant's Grave. Looks good in the garden tho!

It really does look grand in the garden! It is nice that you are continuing to take those charming signs under advisement only. =8^) HowlerGirl Posted by HowlerGirl
