This tall stone took more finding than I anticipated in the end my wife hayley saw it first. Tied down with wire as if to curb its wandering and guarded by a very big horse . Right next to two creepy and deserted houses. Its neighbour Glencraigs is just 200m away but is hidden by a slight rise in the land. Good views of the hills and the sea, wellies preferred. postman Posted by postman
