Gortavoher (North) (Bullaun Stone) — Fieldnotes

I was surprised that this bullaun still existed. It is in the third field in from the road. This field is very boggy/marshy and even during a spell of dry weather was still very wet.
The bullaun is lower than the level of the rushes in the field so I would say in summer when they are probably higher it would be even harder to find. It is situated (when looking north) in the middle and left quadrant of the field.
To the north of the stone is an unusual looking double mound with a stream running through it (It may be natural Im not sure).
The bullaun itself has two cups, one that holds water and the other doesnt / broken.
