Archaeology Notes

NR35NE 33 3765 5682

NR 3765 5682 This standing stone is situated on the slopes of Beinn Bhan 1km S of Kilennan Farm and 1.5km NE of Avenvogie Farm. It is a metabasite boulder, its long axis orientated ESE-WNW. It is 1.73m high, 1.83m at the base, tapering to 1.02m at the top, and 0.65m at its thickest point. Its faces are concave with a 10mm wide diagonal crack running from top left to bottom right of its S face. This stone was pointed out to us by Donald James McPhee, gamekeeper for the Dunlossit Estate, who related that the stone is used as a rendezvous for shooting parties.
