This massive out crop of rock is very close to the Rhiw Goch homestead settlement in Llanllechid.
The picture was taken from the Rhiw Goch settlement.

There are some very interesting marks on one of the stones next to it that are probably glacial marks but look like they could be man made. I will take some pics of these later.

I've no doubt that this massive rock would have held some significance to the people at the settlement and in any case would have acted as a marker for their settlement.
