Moor Divock Alignment (Stone Row / Alignment) — Fieldnotes

It was an absolutely fantastic day on Moor Divock when we went. Having made a brief visit to The Cockpit, we returned, impressed by the circle but mightily irritated by a man sitting on one of the stones making very loud business calls (why out there?) while his family got increasingly bored. It's a weird phenomenon - after not being able to get mobile reception anywhere you find it at the stone circle. This happened at Callanish - 7 text messages arrived all at once!

On the way there we'd spotted the obvious megaliths like The Cop Stone and White Raise, but on the way back many more cairns revealed themselves to us. Making a short detour to Moor Divock Centre, we stumbled across two parallel lines of stones. I'd read briefly about the alignment, but hadn't thought we'd be able to find it. However, once you're there, it's blindingly obvious you're at a stone row - that's if you go on a very bright sunny day when there's virtually no bracken in late May to early June. They are indeed very low, but in a parallel alignment.

Harland Edge (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

Pics don't do this site any justice, so i'm not going to post any. just visit if you can, it's well worth the trek through the heather. There's also abundant inter-visibility going on.
Stunning and weird little site. There's nothing else like it in the area, or anywhere i know of.
