Only 500m northeast of the famous Uragh are the probable remains a another stone circle. Only two stone are still standing, three others lay fallen on the ground.

Although the circle lies close to the road to Gleninchaquin Park, Ameen River between the road and the circle prevents an easy access, unless you are willing to ford the river.

So I walked from Uragh on a hot, sunny day in June, but the last 200m were nevertheless very boggy. While some water weept into my shoes, I was wondering what the hell I was doing here, particularly as I know that the stone circle is in a ruinous condition and not a really worthwhile destination. So don't try this approach after heay rain.
