This is an interesting side stop if you're in the area. A giant boulder moved by a glacier sitting in the middle of the woods. It's fairly impressive when you get up to it.

This was not that well sign-posted but worth the perseverance to find it - no particular signs from the very small car-park, so you head off in the only real direction available in the hope you are right. Five to ten minutes walk you come...More
