Little Castle - Helzie
Little Castle - Helzie
Peerie Castle on modern maps, this is attached to the land.
Look closely through the fissure to see the Covenanter's Memorial.
There are many stacks here, none are definitively labelled on the map but it is a wondrous place for exploring by small boat (on a calm day!)
