Peatshiel Sike

Standing Stone / Menhir


There should be a reason for a standing stone to be sited in its particular location. Looking at Peatshiel Sike I thought the profile of the stone viewed from SW mimics the summit profile of Bodesbeck Law.
Alternatively the stones E-W orientation may suggest a lunar standstill in between Saddle Yoke and Carrifran Gans summits.
