Standing Stone, Clava ring Cairn
Unlike the other Bronze Age cairns at Clava this one was never enclosed.  It may have been used as a tomb or maybe marked the position of a pyre to acompany ceremonies associated with the passage graves.  The surounding stone circle was added later with the highest stones on the side of the midwinter sun. [url=http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=275733&Y=844420&A=Y&Z=115/] Map location. [/url]
