A Resting Place?

In the line of hills which run along the back of the crofting township of Sanna (map here), below the rounded peak of Meall Sanna, there's a small and rather dark hollow.  We've walked near it before, but this time we were moving in a traverse along the hillside so passed right through it, and found....

....a flat, upright stone.  It's unlikely to have arrived here naturally, and it's the perfect size, and the perfect orientation for a grave stone, though there is no remaining inscription upon it.

Such a rough, lonely, and storm-wracked hillside might not seem the obvious place to choose to lay ones mortal remains, until one turns....

....and looks at the view.
