Clach an Trushal (Clach an Truiseil in Gaelic) is reportedly the tallest standing stone (or menhir) in Scotland at roughly 19 feet with possibly another 6-1/2 feet underground.
It is generally thought that it marks the site of a major battle in the past.
One report has it that it is the remaining stone left from a stone circle and that the second last stone standing was removed in 1914.
