Stone Circle


Visited on the 2nd January 2012
Signposted from carriganimmy up a lane to the left (coming from Mill Street diresction). Keep going for a little over a mile and you will see a brown sign saying Archaelogical Sites. There's room to park by the sign. Go through the gate into the obligatory boggy field. There's a stone allignment a five stone circle and a radial cairn.
The allignment is made up of 2 quartz blocks together and a further granite block set back on its own some.The granite block has a cup mark on the top and all three are alligned NE towards the circle.
The circle itself is a nice large five stone recumbant circle in really good condition. It was a shame that the electric fence was so near, but you can't have everything !
The radial cairn is situated SE of the circle and all the monuments here are intervisible
