Hi folks, I was discussing the Malise Sperra stone with a friend last week and it's gotten me hooked a peerie bit.

 

I'm sure I can mind seeing a tall thin standing stone sooth by the golf course at one time but is this right?. I seem to hae a memory of a story that it was removed for road works but was never replaced?.

 

Or is this the correct Malise Sperra stone?. I'm 99% sure the one I remember was taller and thinner.

I don't think the photo in that article does it justice. This is the view from Google Maps Street View. I always remember this stone as my Dad used to point it out without fail any time we drove through the Tingwall Valley.
