A view in summer. Note the groove in the top.


A view of the same stone in December.

 

1.6 km NW of it is another rather similar in the townland of Scotchomerbane - incorporated in a roadside stone wall.
Looking from this stone - which is also grooved on its top - at midwinter dawn,
the sun rises from behind the volcanic plug of Slemish.
