The Cow Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Friday 27/8/04
Only about 320 m down a slight hill from the Brothers' Stones is this massive irregular lump of a monolith. It's 2 m high by around the same in it's greatest width. One of the major axis is aligned NNE/SSW. There is a great notch at the top through which to view the Brothers' Stones. Taken with these pair, this monolith forms a huge triangle on Brotherstone Hill and the walk from here, back up to those pair is like passing through a megalithic gateway.
