Item image
Marked only on the 1908 ed. of the OS 6-inch map where it is described in italic lettering as a Standing Stone. It is situated at the summit of the steep-sided Druminshin Hill. This is a narrow stone with a rectangular cross-section (dims at base 0.43m E-W; 0.23m N-S; H 1.8m). The top had broken off and it was repaired with pitch, while field stones have been gathered around its base. The stone is now leaning to the S and it could be a modern scratching-post.
