St Adamnan's Cross

Standing Stone / Menhir


To the South of the road this stone stands on a small mound called Tom a' Mhoid or Moot hill. Christianised by the incision of crosses on both sides, the Northern face has a distinct cross whereas on the Southern face it's less obvious. I didn't spot it at first whilst there, as the fantastic face in evidence is dominant. Take a look at the picture and you'll see the branding on the forehead. Posted by Ian Murray
