Stoneybridge, South Uist 1965

A photograph, taken in 1965, of a crowd admiring a Highland cow on display at Stoneybridge, in South Uist. Located nine miles west of Loch Boisdale, Stoneybridge is a small, scattered township on the west coast of South Uist. On a small mound, less than a 100m from the shore west of Stoneybridge, there is a standing stone which is 2 metres high, and 40 cm broad at the base, with a thickness of 23 cm. Despite its apparent representation of a cross with one arm severed, it is actually a natural formation.
