|This stone circle lies south of the R585 between Kealkil and Cousane Gap, about 1km southwest of Cousane stone circle. If you drive from Keakil look out for a asphalted farm drive on the right side and park in the small lay-by just before the entrance. Walk around 200m to the farm and ask there for permission. The circle lies behind the farm (due east) and can be approached via a gate at the rear of the farm house.
The circle itself is quite nice. It contains two bulder-burials and lies on a small hill that offers some good views to northwest and northeast (to Cousane Gap). Six stones are still standing, some have fallen and the recumbent in the southwest is a long flat slap.
Unfortunately, as I visted the site, the stones were a bit hidden behind clump of grass, which means, that they don't come to the fore on my pictures.
A word of caution: The short way to the circle across the field seems very easy, but was instead very boggy during my visit. I didn't realized it, because the way looked quite 'normal'. But there seems to be a small stream, that runs through the field in the low ground, which is not clearly 'visible'. But soon as you cross it, you sink in. It is a ambiguous feeling to stand 20m before a stone circle, trying to find a preferably dry way to it, while your shoes are flooded with water and mud. So take care, I've warned you ;-)!
Regardless of that fact, I have not regretted to come to this pretty circle!
