Standing Stone / Menhir


There is some dispute over the authenticity of this standing stone. But It takes your breath away when you see it standing in the grave yard. The stone is over 8 feet high. It seems to be aligned with Carn Fadryn - your eye goes straight to the hill over the valley.
The hole near the top was apparently when the stone was used to hold a lantern, which leads you to believe it is an true relic, as a christian object wouldn't be used in such a flippant way.
Oh be careful parking outside the church, as I was nearly hit by a white van speeding along!
