Sorquoy Stone, South Ronaldsay

This impressive lichen-covered monolith (also known as the Paplay Stone) is one of several standing stones to be found in South Ronaldsay and is believed to be around 5,000 years old. At just over four and a half metres high, it is one of Orkney's tallest standing stones.
