Pray For or Prey On?
This bullaun stone has been discovered on Canna. It probably has a long history, outlined in a Scotland on Sunday item from yesterday's edition. These stones were turned to create hollows by the faithful when they said prayers. When their thoughts were less than benign and they cursed others, they tended to grind the stones vigorously. This stone, found in the ancient graveyard, fitted into the socket of a larger one located near the Canna Cross.
