Druid Auchencar

Standing Stone / Menhir


It's completely different kind of stone when compared to those at Machrie. It would look more at home on the Isle of Lewis.

It's a damn good one. Nice shape, size, good lichen, nice views, fairly easy to get to, with the fallen twin hiding in the grass as a bonus. It's lovely and sculptural.

It's easy to get to from the farmhouse halfway up to Auchencar, where the folks were happy to dispense permission for tromping across the field. Beware though, dodgy narrow track and not much space to turn a vehicle.
