Arn Hill

Stone Circle


The huge Recumbent Stone at Arn Hill is also known as the Ringing Stone or Iron Stone: it is said to give off a clear metallic noise when struck. The information on the Canmore database goes on to describe it as "set absolutely vertical, on a base 8ft 10" long by 3ft 4" broad. Its extreme length is 11ft 7" and it stands 10" clear off the ground. There are traces of much weathered concentric rings on the NE, which may be artificial."

Canmore also has photos of the stone from 1909 (looking stoney and much like it does today) at
