The Caiy Stane
The Caiy Stane
About 3m high, the Caiy Stane is a broad slab of red sandstone possibly marking a ritual or burial place from Neolithic times. The hilltop where it is sited continued to be used in the Bronze Age, and it may also have been the site of a battle in more recent times, with the stone as a memorial. The reverse face has six, probably prehistoric cup marks, some old graffiti and some more recent spray-painted defacings.
