Stone Circle


This RSC lies near the end of the Beara peninsula, just outside the village of Castletownbere. According to Burl this is 'almost a classic recumbent circle', with an unusual orientation. It is set almost due W, at 273°, but the surrounding hills are high and the 'declination is an un-equinoctial 5°'. IronMan Posted by IronMan
