The GPS points me off the forest track and through head high bog rushes, down a fence line and to a sheepfold. Unfortunately, only 6 figure co-ordinates are available for this site. I search and I search- in through dense forest, around the peat bog, searching the grassy banks of the burns, but nothing. The OS couldn’t find this site back in 1979 and the description in ‘The Standing Stones of the Lothians’ doesn’t quite tie in with the co-ordinates given. I’m afraid it’s another site lost in now dense forest.
