Dwarfie Stane

    • This stone is truly amazing. This giant stone stands on a valley floor surrounded by majestic mountains. It is like something from a Stanley Kubrick novel . It is quite profound and you can see why it has attracted attention for millennia. This huge stone has been hollowed out inside by people using stone tools, you would think it had been done by modern power tools it is that smooth. It is epic and should be on your bucket list
