03/09/2018 - I'm sure this is the stone mentioned in Rhiannon's folklore post elsewhere that Mr giant threw up to Mrs giant.

It's just so fantastic I had to give it a little hug when I got there. It's massive and just resting on three little stones - impossibly wonderful.

A must see place.

If you are going or have been to Coll, Boswell and Johnson's accounts of their visit to the island are well worth a read.

Most of Boswell's accounts miss out details of his visit to the stone, just saying it did not repay the trouble in getting to it! Link to his full account -
