Inveraray Castle

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 3.8.13

I had previously visited Inverary Castle a number of years ago but (at that time) was unaware of the standing stone in the castle grounds.

After another visit to the picturesque Inverary village it was time I corrected that omission.

We drove up the drive towards the car park and pulled up near the playing pitches.
A game of shinty was in progress and just as I arrived the reds scored what looked to be a last minute winner judging by the excitement (I have no idea which teams were playing?)

My ‘excitement’ of course was with the tall (approx 3m) standing stone situated a little behind the goal.
The stone is a good ‘un and well worth the minimal effort required in visiting.

The castle is also worth a visit if you are so inclined – the tea rooms are not bad either!
