Boreraig Standing Stone
Boreraig Standing Stone
The stone is about 4' high, 2' across and 6" thick. It faces south towards the sea at Loch Eishort and sits on a small mound of boulders placed around its base. Tradition suggests that the stone marks the burial site of a body or bodies washed ashore, a custom common on Skye.
