Ravie Hill

Standing Stone / Menhir


On the left just past the Twatt junction going to Birsay this stone can clearly be seen out in the open near the base of Ravie Hill . Unable to match the sighting precisely on the map . CANMAP shows tumuli , mounds etc. in this general area but not this feature . Alas I have a strong idea that its prominence is owing to it being one of many fakes placed as landscaping in the Orkneys at the end of the 20th century . wideford Posted by wideford
