Fingal's Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


From The Scots Magazine, October 1985:

"Killin is said to derive its name from Cil-Fhinn, meaning Fionn's burial place, but the stone marking the grave of the great warrior-king of Gaelic legend, much visited in Victorian times, is now virtually ignored. It stands in a small field close to Breadalbane Park, surrounded by boggy ground and rushes. . . . The late Duncan Fraser, who did so much to record local history, wrote that 'a head' was added to the stone last century."
