The Old Man of the Stones

This website is dedicated to the memory of Peter Martin who passed away suddenly, at home, in September 2015. He was a true gentleman and a friend to many. His research in to Gaelic strength culture and traditional stone lifting was without equal. He shared his research and passion freely with many people throughout the world and never asked for anything in return.
