Dunamuck group

Miscellaneous

The Dunamuck stones are the survivors of a group of monuments that at one time included at least two stone circles and possibly a ceremonial avenue.

Dunamuck's strategic position, and perhaps memories of its former ceremonial status, led people to use it for the great Kilmichael Tryst, an important fair and market to which cattle traders came from all over Scotland. On these occasions people used the stones to measure pieces of cloth.
