On a run yesterday alone the coast of Ayrshire and Galloway I headed inland at Port William to see the Standing Stones of Drumtroddan. These consist of three stones that stood ten feet tall.
|The stones are aligned to the midsummer rising sun (my diagram)|
references say that two of the three stones are standing but clearly there was
only one when I was there. One stone was certainly leaning and seems to
have fallen over. Maybe after 4,000 years it fell just before I arrived - how
spooky would that be? |
I found a reference that says the stone fell over in 2011. I'd re-erect it but the powers that be seem happy to leave it.
