Campbeltown Standing Stone

(Balegreggan Standing Stone)

A prominent landscape feature located in a field behind Dalintober, a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of the centre of Campbeltown in Argyll & Bute, the Campbeltown Standing Stone (also known as the Balegreggan Standing Stone) stands approximately 4m (13 feet) in height, is 1.5m (5 feet) wide and leans to the northwest, a result of 19th-century fortune-seekers convinced there was treasure buried at its base. The stone is cup-marked on its southern face. The site provides an excellent view over the town. It has been suggested that the stone was used for astronomical observation.
