Point of Interest Details

At Stop 3 at the top of the boardwalk we can take in the sight of the valley below, which you have just walked up, (or take a rest on the wooden seat!). Here dramatically positioned at the top of the ridge, in a small hollow, is the 'false man'. This bronze-age granite standing stone, has a remarkable vein of quartz running through the centre. The stone was erected about 4000 years ago and intended to dominate the surrounding low-lands.. The walk continues past the information point, along the top of Blane-more ridge, and onto the gravel path and forestry road..
