This tiny and strangely-shaped stone is approximately 0.6m tall, and stands on a low round mound. The shape of the stone makes it look a bit like a dog’s head, and legend has it this is the stone that Fingal used to tie Bran to, Glen Lyon being home to
It is said that in the past, girls from the glen would crawl under the protruding part of the stone in a bid to stop themselves becoming pregnant.
