The Muckle Stane (Monkton)

Natural Rock Feature


The map reference given on the plaque is confusing. The Muckle Stane was moved from a nearby field but NS 285 360 is in the middle of the sea. If you transpose the numbers NS 360 285 is in Monkton & Prestwick New Cemetery.
Dane Love (Ayrshire: Discovering A County (2003)) states that it was originally sited in a field off Charles Avenue.
