Men Scryfa

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Men Scryfa, meaning 'Stone with Writing', is an inscribed stone a short walk from the Men-an-Tol.

The stone, which is 1.8 metres/almost 6 foot high, is believed to date from the 6th century AD. The inscription reads, 'RIALOBRAN-CVNOVAL-FIL' meaning 'Rialobran son of Cunoval'. This translates from modern Cornish to be 'Royal Raven' and 'Famous Chieftain'.

To access the Men Scryfa park in the small car park on the Penzance to Morvah road and follow the track towards the Men-an-Tol. Instead of turning right to the Men-an-Tol continue along the track and the Men Scryfa is in a field on the left of the track.
