From Kilmartin take the A186 north. Then take the B840 signposted Ford. The stone is immediately adjacent to the road on the right - can't miss it.

The broken stone is right next to the road, the other side of a small wall and barbed wire fence. It has a smaller stone next to its front and the large broken section is prostrate on the ground behind.

Worth stopping for if driving along this pretty road.

The original height of this standing stone would have been 5m. It was blown down on the night of 28th December 1879, the same night the Tay Bridge went down. tiompan Posted by tiompan
