Templand Mains (Standing Stone / Menhir)

Canmore ID 65264 (go to Links) states that Templand Mains standing stone is the "remains of a stone circle which gives its name to the farm "Temple-land" on which it stands (Scots Mag 1806). Two of the stones were still standing in 1806 (R M F Watson 1901) and one in 1913."
I love to travel, especially to antiquarian sites. I'm working through the extensive Cornwall site list with an annual week holiday. Avebury is my favourite spiritual destination. Las Vegas is my favourite sinful destination.

I also enjoy hill climbing however as time passes the hills grow steeper. I have climbed around 30 munros, however, I've also climbed The Cobbler, Stac Pollaidh and Suilven so height is not the only criteria.

I used to play golf (9 handicap) and support Queen of the South however I gave up both bad habits. Horse racing was a more recent obsession. I've been in the Queen's stand on Derby Day, an amazing experience. At the moment my current obsession is music gigs: Arcade Fire, Dinosaur Jr, Sparks, Jesus and Mary Chain and Belle & Sebastian, my favourite band.
