This stone is right next to the road and acts as a fence post.

There are many stones like this all over Orkney acting as fence posts.

I am no expert but I don’t know why this one has been listed as prehistoric when clearly most/all of the others are ‘modern’.

Although I am sure Wideord knows more about these things than me (which wouldn't be hard!)
