Straloch Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Straloch (AKA Cotterton or Davan) Standing Stone
Friday 5/4/02
Of all the times we've traveled along this road I've never even noticed this stone- despite it being over 2 m tall! It's tucked down next to the River Ardle behind some trees and a over a large ditch down on the same level as the river. Despite being so tall, the stone is really thin- only about 40 cm or so. It's aligned NE/SW and has an oblong section missing from its northern side. This shape obviously makes it a great scratching post as the stone has been rubbed into a great shine by cattle.
