There are many powerful spirits living in the hills and stones, and it is not a good idea to disturb them. When they cut the road through here, they found this stone was too hard to break up so they put it on a truck. They took it down to the harbour and dropped it in the sea. But the next morning it was back here again. That happened three times. They dropped the stone in the harbour, but overnight it returned, so finally they left it here.
