I visited Clach Stein (Garrabost) while on a Hebridean tour. Clach Stein is located on Point, a peninsula east of Stornaway, connected by a narrow isthmus 1 mile long. Head for Garrabost and turn left for Pabail Larach. The broken recumbent stone is accessible from there.
The original height of the stone would have been 10 feet according to Canmore ID 4396 (go to Links).
There appears to be no written record of the erect stone.
