Uragh West

Stone Circle


'Climbed' to this really nice stone circle from the car park at Uragh on probably one of the hottest days of the Irish summer 2014. Follow Meic's directions and don't worry about the fact, that on the last sign (were you have to leave the farm track) only 'Boulder Burial' and 'Fulacht fia' are mentioned (no Stone Circle).

The circle is great and worth every effort (I needed ~1h from the car park to the circle and back). Unfortunately at my time of visit, it was very overgrown, so maybe a visit in autumn or winter would be the better choice.

Behind the circle are additional boulder buriels and what seems to be a natural huge rock fragment.
