The Duirinish Stone
The community here chose to mark the turn of the 20th to the 21st century by erecting this stone. It came from a beach in south Skye, weighs five tons and stands five metres tall.
It was raised using traditional non-mechanical methods.
The background view is over the settlement of Dunvegan.
