The standing stones are in the field next to the church car park.

Access is easy but the rain was coming down so I didn’t hang around long.

The stones are covered in lichen and on a nice day there would be good views to be had – today was not a nice day!

HY23431979 Flatface-aligned stone pair below the cleared area in front of churchyard. Not aligned to the (comparatively modern) church but probably on the same NE/SW alignment as the majority of the fields in Sandwick. 3m apart - the stone at left 1.3x0.5x0.1m in a 1.1x0.5m stone setting, the RH stone 1.2x0.5m. wideford Posted by wideford
