Clach Oscar

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 30.7.13

From Torrin take the B8083 west. After about 3 miles the road bends around the top of the loch. There is a large area you can park. From the parking area follow the ‘path’ north towards Loch na Sguabaidh – a stream will be on your left. Within a few minutes you will see Clach Oscar directly in front of you. Can’t miss it.

Clach Oscar is a large erratic approximately 1m square, covered in lichen and moss.
It appears that the 3 large pieces were originally all part of the same stone?

The stone is certainly worth visiting for the walk and views which are fantastic.
When the weather is kind (as it is today) this is an unbelievably scenic place to visit.
