Standing Stones


This pair are hidden from the road by a thick hedge. Heading west on the Solway Coast road (A710) from Dumfries, pass through the hamlet of Mainsriddle. after the bend in the road there, pull into the first lane on the right. There should be enough space to park there. Enter the field across the road by the field gate, turn right and walk up to the opening in the dyke into the next field, turn left and head down towards the sea. The stones should be visible after a few yards. They are about 100 yards apart. The first is a boulder of only a couple of feet in height and the second is a block about three feet high. Not spectacular but not hard to tick off if on your Galloway list. A couple of fields away on the other side of the road there is another stone - Kells farm - not seen it yet. new abbey Posted by new abbey
