The Dog Stone

There are several traditions about the Dog Stone in Glen Lyon. The first one that I heard as a child
was that it was used by the Scottish giant Fion to teather his great mastive to. Clearly the name may
come from the fact that the roch does look like the head of a dog. Another theory is that it was used
in the Clan times as a test of pregnancy . Girls were required to squeeze under when suspicions of
rape by another Clan were arroused.
