Giant's Stone

Natural Rock Feature


I went looking for the Giant's Stone last year (Sep 2009) and found a big erratic at OS grid NJ481290 about where the the stone is marked on early OS maps. Quite a bit higher up tap o' noth than the stone drewbhoy went to.
Quite easy to get to. Follow path from the car park for tap o noth and about half way up from the car park (420m height) head for the trees. It's just inside.
I would be interested to go back and look at the other stone drewbhoy talks about.

Just above the trees is a spur of rock called Clochmaloo (Stone of St Moluag) associated with a famous Celtic missionary from about A.D. 562. well worth a visit too on a nice day.
