Another beautifully located single stone on the highest point of this extraordinary finger of land between two deep gorges. Like it's cousins Maen Bach and Maen Hir it stands marking an ancient trackway and point to the valleys below and beyond

The two cairns are next to the stone and nearby is what looks suspicously like a complex of round barrrow needing further investigation
