The Blind Fiddler (also known as Tregonebris or Trenuggo Longstone) is a 3.3 meter high quartz-banded granite menhir (standing stone) that stands behind a hedge near Catchall near the A30 in Cornwall, England.

Tombs were discovered here in the 19th century, which makes it likely that the stone is associated with the nearby Boscawen-√Ľn stone circle. The stone was supposedly a musician who neglected his Christian duties by playing music on the Sabbath, his punishment being petrification. It owes its name, along with numerous other Fiddler stones, to a parable that was supposed to keep people away from pagan rituals and ceremonies.

The Blind Fiddler is triangular in shape and over 1.8 meters wide at its base, while otherwise being remarkably slim and sleek.
