The O/S map shows ‘Stone Row’ a little north of Cnoc Freiceadain chambered cairns.

I didn’t have time to go tramping over the fields for a close-up look but I thought I may have been able to spot the stones form atop the chambered cairn with the help of my trusty binoculars. Unfortunately I couldn’t make the stones out.

The fields are covered in gorse and generally overgrown.

Canmore states:
‘The stone rows, in a hollow on undulating moorland, are considerably obscured by peat and heather growth. Only half the stones can be traced. The southern stones have been almost entirely buried by the vegetation. The stones appear to radiate from the direction of the two cairns’.
** This report is from 1969 so it doesn’t surprise me I couldn’t see anything.
