This stone row is just a few hundred yards from the Grey Cairns of Camster. According to CANMORE there are actually six rows here but they're disappearing under the peat. I found two of the rows. A couple of stones are maybe a metre proud of the peat. Others have only a few centimetres showing.
Don't go hunting in wet weather or you may get sucked into the bog and never seen again!!
About 1 mile further north of the famous Grey Cairns of Camster.
Just keep heading up the road and you will see the standing stones on your right.
My O/S map shows three standing stones but I could only spot 2 of them amid the tall spiky grass – both of which are visible from the road although not obvious.
The adjacent wind turbines dominate the area.
Whilst searching around for the ‘missing’ stone I was constantly surrounded by a mass of flies. Perhaps they were after the salt in my sweat on this hot, sticky day. Or perhaps I just smelt!
I was planning on having a look at the nearby broch but unfortunately ran out of time.
‘Three small stone slabs stand in heather moorland immediately E of the minor road from Watten to Lybster. The southernmost stands immediately E of the road and measures 0.8m in height by 0.22m in thickness – there is an O/S bench-mark on its SSE face. The second stone, which also stands immediately E of the road, measures 0.5m in height and 0.4m in thickness. The northernmost stone measures 0.8m in height by 0.25m in thickness’.
Three fairly small stones - CANMORE thinks one of them might just be a random boulder rather than part of a setting with the two definite megaliths.
The stones are near the road and in a very empty bit of flat moor, but they're low enough to be easily missed when the heather is thick.
"Small stones in flat featureless moor" sounds pretty dull, but it's a lovely site!
