I love how in Scotland they have this amazing artifact like the Dunfallandy Stone just out in the field where it was originally discovered. They've preserved it behind glass, but it's still just on a farm somewhere, instead of being carted off to a museum....More

It was a bit of an uphill climb, not for anyone that has difficulty with stairs as you have to cross a working pasture to get to the site. It was fun watching the farmer get his sheepdog to corral the sheep so we could...More

The stone is protected by panes of glass on both sides in a roofed enclosure. The only negative was the difficulty to get good photos because of the reflection. Still it was great to see it. The explanatory sign helped us to identify the images...More

My husband is very interested in such standing stones but, I think, due to the weather, the protective covering was covered in moisture so it was hard to see the fine detail.
