The decorated stone seen from the northeast.


We drove on narrow and winding roads, and eventually we found a muddy track that led to this decorated standing stone. The track is 350 metres long and at this point we had to jump over a cattle fence and walked 60 metres to reach the stone.
It's 2.50 metres tall, 70 centimetres wide and 20 centimetres thick at the base, but it tapers upward and it's only 10 centimetres thick at the top.
On its south face there are three spiral patterns, one of these is 50 centimetres in diameter.
