Menhir de Kerhoret
Menhir de Kerhoret submitted by ogham : The menhir is located on the floodplain of the river. (Vote or comment on this photo)
The menhir is 4.8 metres tall, at the base the face is a good 4 metres wide and it is thickness is 0.5 metres. It leans at an interesting angle and the face is to the SW. The field it is located in is marsh, so in the winter it is very wet.

The menhir is located in a field next to the Nantes-Brest canal in the river Blavet section. You access the site by leaving the main road and crossing the railway track at an unmanned level crossing. You can then follow the unmade track to the menhir. The site is not sign posted so you will need a good map or GPS.
