The Meteorite at Glentress

The nearest stane to Innerleithen is at nearby Glentress. This six ton Ledmore marble stane contains text carved in Klingon, with the eery implication that it may not be of this world.

If you’re curious about the name, ‘stane’ is the Scottish word for stone, and at each of the 7 Stanes locations, across Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders, you’ll find a unique stane reflecting a local myth or legend.


There is parking available at Innerleithen 7 Stanes, as well as picnic facilities, but for public toilets and places to eat, head into Innerleithen. Please be aware there may be parking charges.
