Huge standing stone in the middle of no where. Its worth a quick look, and the signs are in English and French. Only need to spend about 5-15 minutes.

Not far off the main road with a small lay-by car park. Very impressive up close and lots of good photo opportunities. Definitely Worth a visit if in the area.
