Borve Standing Stone
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The stone is about three feet high and leans at a considerable angle to the east. What struck me most was the dark, almost black colour of the stone, looking as if it was a piece of burnt charcoal in places.
Apparently, there is a second stone about 36 feet to the south-west, but this has been absorbed into the machair and was invisible when I looked!
