Hole Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


According to a leaflet in Kirkinner Church, quoting 'Old Wigtown' by Jack Hunter, the stone is called the Old Bridal Stone, and couples used to use it to make a marriage contract by joining hands through the hole. The C10th cross in the church was similarly used, which raises the possibility that the hole is a later addition to the stone. Posted by Ubik
