Round Cairn


1920 newpapers report a possible circle represented by 6-8 stone stumps near the cairn, though as the two accounts give a threefold variance for the latter's diameter these could be the putative arc of kerbing now thought to have come from elsewhere. However, a pair of stones appeared to represent an entrance (obviously not the pair of 2-3' entrances at the cairn's sides, roughly built of beach stones) and were visibly larger in the previous century. This would certainly lend itself better to naming the nearby Stensigarth than the Cloddiehaugh standing stone by itself. wideford Posted by wideford
