The site is very overgrown now,hardly recogniseable .I didn't realise I had found it at first,the large boulder giving it away,the heather hiding all the other stones. The mound can be made out only because of it's surrounding ditch causing a gap in the undergrowth.
A bit of a trek to get here up very steep slopes,and not easy to find without a GPS. It's about 100 meters from a track and a small pond,but invisible from more than about 50 meters away.
Good views though.

Site description from Coflein:

"A stone circle, 24-22m in diameter, comprising eleven earthfast stones, c.0.2m high, and a natural boulder. Eccentric within the circle is a ditched mound, 8.0m in diameter and 0.5m high."

These are very low stones, suggesting this could as easily be some kind of ring cairn or kerb.
