To the NW of the Stones of Stenness, at the southern edge of the Bridge of Brodgar, stands the Watch Stone, 5.6 m (18 ft) tall and with an interesting name.
    This standing stone probably had some connection with the nearby Stenness henge. Some theories say that once this menhir was part of a series of standing stones that linked Ring of Brodgar with the Stones of Stenness.
