Achadh-Chaorann is a short distance to the east of the Carse stone row - along the same road.

The rain was by now coming down hard and we were running late for the ferry so I had to settle for a 'drive by'. The stone is visible from the main road.

I was initially disappointed not to have a closer loot at the stone and its cup marks but as it turns out we only just made the ferry so it turned out to be a blessing in disguise :)

Hopefully I will get a proper when next in the area?
