The Setter Stone, erected thousands of years ago, is one of the tallest megaliths in Orkney.
The Setter Stone stands proudly to the north of the island, along the Eday Heritage Trail. It is seven feet (2.1 metres) wide at the base and, at over 15 feet high (4.5 metres) which makes it one of the tallest megaliths in Orkney.
It was erected by Neolithic peoples thousands of years ago but over the years, has suffered badly from erosion. This weathering has given the stone a distinctive profile which some say looks like a hand of a giant.
The Setter Stone sits on The Heritage Trail which will guide you past the Neolithic burial tombs, a Bronze age enclosure and Iron age field boundaries.
