Standing Stone / Menhir


Another of the deep glowing rich blue stone monoliths, standing on an unusually level field above the bay. On a roughly E/W axis, it is about 10 feet tall, 18 inches deep and 3 feet wide.

Looking to the east, the eye is caught by the odd lump of the peak of Cnoc Crun na Maoil (I think).

Just over the brow as you head downhill, at the left in front of the little copse is the outline of the walls of the Kilbride chapel, and beyond a clear line of sight to Druim nam Madagan (Torradale) standing stone. There's also a view to the loch where the water for Laphroaig whisky comes from down to the distillery itself and the sea.
