The stone is far in the field. It is so big that it can be made out from a long distance.


This unusually shaped and big standing stone is in a private field. My first attempt to reach it was along an overgrown path, following the power lines above my head, but it proved to be the wrong way. A local man directed me to an easier way to go to the stone.

Because of its unusual shape, much wider at the top and with a rising and stepped slope, this stone is also known as the Harp Stone.
The big stone is 3.27 metres tall, and it is 1.02 metres wide at the base and 1.63 metres at the top.
