Clach Na Gruagach

Natural Rock Feature


"Quite often the offerings were of some foodstuff, particularly milk. Some of the stories were named after gruagach - supernatural beings who watched over cattle and dairy work - and offerings of milk were left at these stones in return for good harvests and other agricultural benefits. Offerings of milk were left at the Clach Na Gruagach on Colonsay. Marks on the stone were said to have been caused by ropes used to tie the gruagach to it."
