The standing stone in the field seen from outside the barbed wire, with the cows that chased me out.


The Garryduff standing stone is on a private land used as a pasture for some cattle. The day we were here, the field was populated by a certain number of cows and a bull who surely had had a bad day because he started threating me when I first stepped in, then he annoyed me with a lot of snorting and clawing on the ground at short distance.
He didn't allow me to get close to the stone enough to take the coordinates, I just managed to touch it and took some photos. Right after these actions, the bull got very angry and started attacking me, with his horns aimed at me. I had to run to leave the field while the bull and his cows were chasing me.
I took the coordinates from outside the land, about 15 metres southeast from the stone. It measures about 3.50 metres in height, 1.20 metres of width at the base and 30 to 40 centimetres of thickness.
In the very moment that I jumped out the field I met two men on a truck who turned out to be the landowners. They told me that locals know this stone with name of Long Man's Grave.
