Known locally as the Giants Stone Castletimon Ogham Stone is lying in a niche at the side of the road. The stone measures 1.5 metres by 0.48 wide and 0.25 metres thick, the ogham inscription reads,


Dating between 350-550 AD the stone was first discovered in 1854. If you are around this area I would recommend a visit as the niche in which it stands has been tidied up recently. About 250 metres east of here is Castletimon standing stone.
