|Description ||This stone is on the western side, at the very end of the north avenue, (as we see it today, and within the current site boundary) at Callanish. I believe it may have had links with fertility rites, as from this angle the two lumps of black hornblende that jut out from its northern face look like a swollen stomach of a pregnant woman - the higher piece maybe representing her head.|

| In 'Circles & Standing Stones' by Evan Hadingham (1978 edition), he says: "The two stones at the end of this avenue are turned at right angles to its course, as if they were meant to indicate a terminal point."|
