Scottish lifting stone locations

When planning a tour of the historic stones of Scotland, there are a few questions that come up: “Where is the Inver stone?”, “Where are the Dinnie Stones?”, “Where’s the Puterach exactly?”… You get the idea.

The Dinnie stones
Where exactly are the Dinnie Stones?

In the past, people located stones by getting directions from other people who knew where they were. Now we have easily accessible maps and GPS at our fingertips, so we’ve gathered information from the community and put together an interactive map containing each stone that we know of!

Before going out and lifting any of these stones, make sure you’re familiar with stonelifting etiquette.

Here’s our directory of lifting stones in Scotland, featuring lifting stone sites. Click on the name of the stone to take you to the location on our map. Alternatively, if you just want to explore all of the stones — go straight to the map.

One of the main goals of the project is to create and maintain a directory of all the stones people want to lift — including the locations of each stone.

Using our directory and map, it’s easier than ever to find each stone and plan your trip to each lifting site!

Each time we add a new stone to the map, our directory updates too!
