This standing stone is no longer here.
It would have stood about 2km to the south of Cnoc Greine.
I spoke to a local man who said that it was toppled because people thought it could have fallen on people or animals! It was then broken up and removed.
It seems to have happened within living memory. I should have asked some more questions of him at the time.
