Standing nearly 12 feet high, this prehistoric stone dominates the view over Glen Lyon in the Scottish Highlands.
Approached from up a steep path, it is only visible when one gets within about 25 feet of it – then it takes your breath away.
Probably erected in the Bronze Age, no one knows it’s purpose or who put it there, but there are remains of a prehistoric wall nearby and several burial mounds litter the plateau.
Folklore say the Hero Fionn, in a show of prowess, split the stone with one shot from his mighty bow.
A small religious community in the valley below started to call the stone ‘The Praying Hands of Mary’.
The locals call it ‘The Stone of Fionn’.
