Hi Drew,

Just to say that this is Fullarton Stone Circle.

Cairnhall was totally destroyed some time ago.

Quote from RCAHMS:
The remains of the circle at Cairnhall consisted of two stones, one standing, and the other prostrate; but by 1917 only the single standing stone remained.
F R Coles 1901; J Ritchie 1917.

All that remains of this stone circle is a single stone 1.5m high, 2.3m in girth, situated at NJ 7849 1759 in a contractor's yard near Cairnhall.
Revised at 1/2500.
Visited by OS (RD) 19 March 1964.

Nothing is now visible of this stone circle, the last stone having been removed some time after 1964.
Visited by RCAHMS (JRS, IF), 7 May 1996.
