Standing Stone / Menhir


Near the celebrated stone circles on Mauchrie Moor, Arran, there is a cairn, partly demolished, which Fion-gal, the hero of Highland tradition, is said to have used as his justice-seat; and the stone, beside which the culprit stood - a huge block of red sandstone, is pointed out as the "Panel's Stone."
p30 of John McArthur's 'Antiquities of Arran' (1861).

I wonder which monument this applies to. It can't be Fingal's Cauldron Seat, surely, as simultaneously dishing out justice would give you indigestion. Perhaps this is the Panel Stone?
