Louisenlund (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

There are approx 50 standing stones . There has never been any excavation and there is no site plan that I'm aware of . A very superficial attempt at a survey shows a rough circle of ten stones to the south and to the north of that , a horseshoe /open rectangular grouping open to the north , consisting of 16 stones .The biggest stone is aligned roughly east to west is between the two most obvious groupings and is cup marked .
The area was named in 1851 , after Louise ,wife of the King of Denmark .

Glennan (Cup Marked Stone) — Fieldnotes

This site deserves it's own page but as there is no appropriate site type (Cinerary Urn (findspot )) in the site type list list it will have to be included with the nearest available site .

It's approx 500 m east of the Glennan marked rocks .

Discovered by a bird watcher ,after publication of the RCAHMS Kilmartin guide .

"NM 8622 0097 An evaluation was undertaken of the findspot of a cremation deposit in an urn within a boulder shelter near to Kilmartin Glen.

Excavation established that the urn was cordoned and had been inverted in an irregular cut into the scree slope below the boulder shelter. The urn is decorated with horizontal lines of impressed decoration comprising twisted cord and bone. Only the upper 0.15m of the vessel survives; its poor condition necessitated the contents being excavated in situ and the vessel was lifted in pieces. All spoil was sieved, resulting in the recovery of further burnt bone, fragments of pot and a single retouched flint flake.

It was impossible to establish the nature of potential further archaeological deposits under the area of the boulder shelter because of constraints of space and issues of safety.
