Comet Stone

Comet Stone image

This standing stone stands on a low mound, 137m to the east of the Ring of Brodgar. It is 1.7m high, 0.7m wide and 30cm thick.
On the same mound are the stumps of two other stones, perhaps the remains of a 'cove' such as once existed inside the nearby Stones of Stenness.
