Char's Stone (NR)
OS 6"map, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1904)
A standing stone traditionally marking the grave of Char, son of one of the kings of Denmark. It is approximately 3' high and 1 1/2' square
at the base.
Name Book 1871
A stone 1.1m high by 0.7m broad by 0.4m thick. It stands in the centre of a circular stony mound about 6.0m in diameter and 0.4m high which in turn surmounts a knoll commanding a wide view of the Corrimony district. The mound may be original but could possibly be due to clearance piled round the base of the stone.
Visited by OS (J M) 10 June 1974
