Port Ellen

Standing Stone / Menhir


Follow Carl's directions except it isn't a track, its a minor road which leads to quite a few sites. The stile mentioned in another fieldnote is a bit of a shambles, however the fence is easily jumped being of no great height.

Standing at 4.3m it is a very tall, in a land of very tall stones.

Like most of the stones near the south coast of Islay I'd think the sea has something to do with its placing. Or is it? The next stone we'd visit had no views of the sea.
