The rocks protruding from the slope of the mountain form a structure similar to a chair.


Gleann Cholm Cille is famous for its "Turas", the journey, the path that people follow from one station to the other one during their pilgrimage done between June 9th and August 15th. The round of the stations is about 3 km long. The stations are both in the village and outside the village.

This stone protruding from the mountain slope behind the village of Glencolumbkille is said to be the place where St. Columba would sit and rest during his walks up the hill. Today it is the 6th station of the Turas.
