From on top of this rock you can clearly see the standing stone of Longstone.

The Rock itself is a massive natural landmark and this combined with its views of the surrounding hills and the fact there is a church dedicated to St. Bridget beside make me think that it may have had some importance dating back to pre-christain times.
