Clach na Carraig, nr Oban, Argyll & Bute

Many places in Scotland lay claim to the custody of the remains of the great Irish hero 'Diarmid'. This stone called 'Clach na Carraig' or 'Clach Diarmid' is one of three monuments standing close together in Glen Lonan, east of Oban in Argyll and Bute. Tradition has it that together with the cairn to the southeast it marks the grave of the Irish hero.

The illustration is from 'Loch Etive and The Sons of Uisnach', published by MacMillan & Co, 1879
