Watch Stone

Watch Stone image

A magnificent monolith standing close to the causeway between Loch of Stenness and Loch of Array (Orkney). It is 5.6m high, 1.5m wide and only 40cm thick.
It is likely to have some connection with the site of the Stones of Stenness, 120m to the south-east. The stump of a second stone was found nearby.
