Camus nan Geall st. stone image

This prehistoric standing stone lies in a small Christian burial ground, on a tiny arable plain between the shore and the hills, on the coast of Ardnamurchan peninsula (Highlands).
It is 2.3m high, 0.9m wide and 23cm thick. It bears some much later decorations, carved on its west face in bas relief: two crosses (the larger one with pellets between the arms) and an animal (possibly a dog).
Some 90m to the north there is a ruined chambered cairn.
