Hurrah - the wheelie bins are no more!
The stone looks far more stately as a result :)

There is a parking space pretty much next to the stone (same side of road). The stone is large, approximately 3m (2.5 wheelie bins!) Two of which (black and green) were being guarded by this impressive stone. I wonder what the ancients would have thought? At least it is still with us, and will be long after the last wheelie bin has been collected.

For about half the week this stone was flanked by a variety of wheelie bins. Wheelie bins need to be collected from the roadside and this stone has unfortunately found itself right on the verge so be prepared for your souvenir shots to feature a variety of coloured wheelies!
Park just across from the primary school and the the stone is right there by the car park. Dont get run over.
This stone had a partner. It lies tumbled in the woods across the road. Cross the road and go into Stronach Wood. Follow the low wall and fence line of the primary school into the trees until the school boundary fence turns to your left. Continue on your original bearing for the same distance again. Even in the undergrowth and trees it is hard to miss. I was out of battery power on my camera when I went... so no pic! Next time!

Look out for this one! As you drive North through Brodick it sits right on the very edge of the road on the right hand side. If you hit the museum you've gone too far, but I doubt you'll miss it - it's pretty huge!

A lovely added bonus as we were heading back towards the fery after an afternoon spent on Machrie Moor.

I visited Arran for work reasons so I was limited to the sites I could see... this one is conveniently on the verge of the main road road through Brodick A841, almost opposite a school.
An impressive slab of sandstone, there are faint signs of graffitti / letters carved into it.
