Sanna Standing Stone
Amongst the tumbled rocks along the northernmost of Sanna's beaches is this rock which, if only it stood on its end in a nice grassy field, would in all likelihood be identified as a Bronze Age standing stone. It's dimensions are perfect. It has a square cross-section, and the exposed length is just over two meters - compare with Branault's 2.2m above ground - with more almost certainly under the sand.
On the other hand, it might be just like all the other lumps of rock lying around on that stretch of beach, a leftover from thousands of years of erosion.
This looks like a job for the sleuths of Ardnamurchan Community Archaeology.
