Stan Stane

The standing stone or 'stan stane' is a monolith perforated with a hole and stands in a field a short distance from Nouster pier. The stone measures approximately thirteen feet high and its hole may have been a sighting hole for another stone or a celestial event. According to folktales, the hole was made by a giant woman who found the stone on the beach, stuck her finger through it, and went onto the land and planted it into the ground.
