Fieldnotes
The Cammo standing stone is one of the most massive I've seen while exploring the area for this web site. It's located within the grounds of Cammo estate, now in public hands, and is almost hidden by trees and shrubs. It's green coating of moss and lichen seems to conspire to keep it hidden from view, almost as if it's shy of being seen. There are no markings on the stone to give any of it's secrets away and what is purpose was, is a mystery.
