Standing stones

Men Scryfa (inscribed stone), Carn Galva on the horizon.

Men Scryfa (inscribed stone), Carn Galva on the horizon. 

On the far side of this 1.7m high standing stone (and too faint to be photographed) is an inscription dated to the 6th to 8th centuries commemorating 'Rialobranus son of Cunovalus'.
The stone is thought to be a prehistoric menhir.
