This large stone is covered with 'hairy lichen'.
A notch is out of the top of the stone.
The field was slightly drier here - relatively speaking!

The sun was shining, mist enveloped the distant mountain. I saw a pheasant, rabbit and swift (or was it a swallow?). Lovely.

Visited 10th August 2004: This is the largest stone in the Lochbuie group, and it's so close to the circle that it may as well be part of the same site. An impressive lump of rock, even in the rain. Kammer Posted by Kammer

This is the nearer of the two large outliers, which stands around 40m SW of the circle. It is 3m in height, and fairly dramatic! nickbrand Posted by nickbrand
