Standing Stones


I took two visits to these three stones once in the dark and again in the morning, it didnt bring any hints or shine a light as to the stones purpose.
These are the safest stones in Scotland, one stone is behind bars in the police station garden, (others will say "no its next to the memorial" but I can see the truth) the other two are opposite the post office, I can only hope my compadre's are looking out for our stones. I don't know if the two are built into the bank where they have always stood or if they were moved there.
In 1943 V G Childe said the two stones in the bank/hedge could be portal stones for a burial chamber, but some archaeological magic was undertaken in 2007 before some residential renovating, but nothing was found, so it looks like a stone circle with big impressive stones once stood at the centre of this village, but now only three misunderstood stones remain, still it's better than some fared on the Cowal peninsula.
Clachan Strachur school I'm talking about you.
