The Old Man of Gugh

The Old Man of Gugh

The island of Gugh is part of the larger island of St Agnes which sits on the edge of the Isles of Scilly Heritage Coast. This dominating Bronze Age standing stone is called a Menhir and stands about 2.7 metres in height. The ‘Old Man’ fits into this ancient landscape well, protruding out from the moor like a protective guard against the windy coast.
