Fang Circle

Stone Circle


The National monument Record (available via Pastmap) describes the site in the following way:
The stone circle lies a short distance W of M'Lellan's croft, on a remnant of a raised beach and about 70ft from the high water mark, on the N shore of Loch Seaforth.
There are seven stones visible, set on the circumference of a circle about 54ft in diameter. Two stones, 4ft 3ins and 5ft 6ins high, are free-standing, one has been broken, and the others have been incorporated in walls.
The keeper, who has been on the place more than 50 years, thinks that there were at least 4 large flat stones lying near the centre. A stone, 4 1/2ins thick, built into a recent wall, may be one of them; there is another inside the sheep-pen.
This account is dated 1936. The eight figure grid reference given for 'Fangs' is NB27811662.
