This huge needle-like Cross Pillar stone, marked on the OS map as 'Pillar Stone' but
not marked on the Historic map, is located in an ancient burial ground opposite a more
recent church, NW of the town of Ballycastle, 'Baile an Chaisil', just off the R314,
overlooking Bunatrahir Bay. The stone, leaning slightly, is over 6m in height, 0.40m in
width and 0.20m in depth and on a side face, is a beautifully inscribed Maltese Cross
and just above this, is a Latin Cross, 0.60m in height, with expanded terminals.
