Standing stone at Camas nan Geall, Ardnamurchan

This photograph shows a cross-inscribed standing stone near the burial ground of Cladh Chiarain at the ruined settlement of Camas nan Geall, on the southern shore of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.

The standing stone has not been shaped and may have been erected in the Bronze Age. The west face of the stone, as seen in this picture, has been subsequently carved with several motifs including a Latin cross with wedge-shaped side-arms. Other ancient monuments in the area include a chambered cairn, about 90 metres north of the burial ground, and a prehistoric fort overlooking the bay.
