Caiy Stane

[Caiy Stane]

The Caiy Stane (or Camus Stone) is a 2.8 metre-tall, 5,000 year-old standing stone found on a quiet residential street in the southern part of Edinburgh. Apart from a few faint graffiti marks, it appears to have survived miraculously well; you can even make out a row of Neolithic cup marks on the back.
