Is it or isn't it ? I dunno ,if pushed I would say it's not prehistoric but obviously not natural ,the stones have been set and the central one toppled . It's not in Canmore or on any map . I can't believe it wasn't noticed by RCAHMS when they visited the nearby hut circle and enclosures .FWIW it's aligned 42 degrees and the resulting declination is about a degree and a half off the major standstill which is probabaly coincidence .But then again , nahh . tiompan Posted by tiompan
