Kempock Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


There is a huge stone at one end of the village of Gourock, where a saint of the name of Kempock formerly kept a shop for the sale of winds to sailors.
At this place the modern navigators of the Clyde leave their mistresses, when bound on distant voyages.
Running the church as a business? whatever next.
From p17 of 'A Picture of Scotland' by Robert Chambers (1828) - scanned in at Google Books.
