According to CANMORE, this is a cairn, approximately 19m in diameter, with a single standing stone on the SSW quadrant. The field was full of bullocks today, so discretion kicked in and I couldn't confirm the stone itself, having to be content with a couple of rather atmospheric photographs of the cairn looming out of the mist. There are a couple of projecting stones which show up fairly clearly, which the CANMORE researcher thought might be part of a kerb. nickbrand Posted by nickbrand
