The Watchstone

Standing Stone / Menhir


It was once believed that the Watchstone would come alive at midnight every New Year's Eve and drink from the loch next to which it stands.

This tale of course stems from the time when folk believed that standing stones were petrified giants. I'm not sure how widely believed it is nowadays lol!
