These two Bronze Age standing stones are at Windhill, between Muir of Ord and Beauly, on the east side of the A862. A third stone stands on the west side of the road.. The stones are associated with the Brahan Seer's prophesy, 'that the raven will drink from the top of Clach-an-t-Seasaidh its full of the blood of the Mackenzies for three successive days'. Other features in the area include an enclosure, a ring-ditch, crop marks and a cist burial.
