Auchencar Standing Stone

Isle of Arran, Sunday, 30th October 2022



What keeps

one stone standing

when others fall?


The debris of a second stone

lies strewn around the foot of this one.


Together they must have made a pretty pair.


Were there once others whose remains

are now no longer to be seen?



From this angle the stone looks

positively ‘gnonomic’,

which may once have been its function.


And, or, ‘druidic’

which was definitely not.


Although not easy to spot

from these shots, because of the lichen growth,

the monolith is formed of red sand-stone.


Little did we know that we were destined to meet

some of its equally tall cousins later in the day…






We'd love to hear from you...
