As reported by earlier this month, an American has become the first person in modern history to lift the ancient Ultach Ghillieasbuig Ailein Heisker stone on Baleshare, North Uist.

Jon Cegielski lifted the ancient stone, thought to weigh around 250 kg, after flying in from New York State following a tip-off from local resident Jacob Hetherington.

Here, he talks to Iain Maciver of Maciver Media about his amazing feat of strength.
