|Description ||Standing Stone at Auchencar, Isle of Arran
Red sandstone Standing stone 5m high, covered in lichens, with views over Machrie Bay. The stone is very thin.
This stone is similar to the red sandstone circles found at machrie moor.
Aubrey Burl identifies a possible source for these stones at Auchencar, which is 5 km to the north of machrie moor. If this is the site of the quarry for the machrie moor stones, was this particular stone some sort of marker.
