    Stone o Quoybune Info

    The Stone o’ Quoybune is solitary standing stone of prehistoric origin in Birsay in Orkney.

    The stone stands at nearly 4m high and is one of the Orcadian standing stones associated with the folklore of the ‘petrified giant’. The myth says that each New Year, the Stone o’ Quoybune goes down to the nearby Boardhouse Loch and takes a drink. If you were to see the stone taking this annual trek, then supposedly you would not live to see another new year.
