Clach an Trushal
Clach an Trushal is the tallest standing stone in Scotland at an impressive 5.8m tall. It stands on an artificially-flattened platform looking out to sea, and was once surrounded by a circle of smaller stones (probably around 1.5m in height).
The remains of these stones can be seen built into the nearby field walls. The last erect stone was taken down and used as a lintel in a local house around 1914. The circle would probably have measured around 30m in diameter, with Clach an Trushal off-centre.
Around 35m to the north-east of the stone is a prostrate slab measuring 1.50m long by 0.75m wide and 0.20m thick which may once have stood as an outlier.
