Standing Stones


Some people from the Knockrome and Ardfarnal crofting township believed that Jura was named after two great warriors, Diu and Rah (Diura is Gaelic for Jura). These warriors fought a battle here in which they both died. Their bodies were buried at the foot of these standing stones. When you walk up or down the road, tradition says that you are "Eadar a Diura" (between the two Jura's). Posted by rockandy
