(NR 3033 4743) Stone (NAT)

OS 6" map, Buteshire, 2nd ed., (1900)

The standing stone at Grasdale ruins is unique among the stones observed up to the present in the Oa. Though only 3ft high, it is dressed and rounded at the top in the manner of the better stones of Kildalton.

W Lamont 1959.

NR 3033 4744 This smooth, well rubbed earthfast stone stands in the yard of a derelict croft. Measuring 1m high, 0.9m wide and 0.4m thick at base, it is doubtfully prehistoric and was probably placed as a rubbing stone.

Visited by OS (JRL) 9 June 1978.
