Clach A'Pheanais (Balnahard) Standing Stone
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Clach A'Pheanais is about 4 feet high, tapered toward the top, and slopes from one side to the other. It is aligned roughly east and west.
It is quite likely that Clach A'Pheanais is not a standing stone at all, but rather a stone erected specifically in relation to St Catherine's Chapel. The chapel, known popularly by the Gaelic Cill Chatriona, is the partial remains of a building of indeterminate age, possibly founded by monks from Iona.
