Standing Stone, Breachacha: This stone, situated 1km SW of Breachacha Castle at the E side of the track to Crossapol Bay, is aligned approximately N and S and stands to a height of 1.5m. About 1.1m in breadth and 0.6m in thickness, it rises with straightish sides to a rounded top and now leans to the W at an angle of 12 degrees. A large recumbent slab, a little to the W, is not considered to have been a standing stone.
