A curious sequence of stones on the RH side of the road to Yesnaby. They go up the hillside towards the right of South Seatter farm. Not from a 'standing stone fence' as they face the road, though still possibly each a part of a fence of its own. Not a stone row as they aren't in anything like a straight line. Maybe just my fancy rather than a real entity ?? When I first saw them I marched off the road and down among the boggy tussocks to obtain a better picture. For any that follow me I say continue along the road as no distance ahead lies a farm track up to South Seatter that will provide a more stable viewpoint for photos. wideford Posted by wideford

The nearby burial mound the NMRS calls South Seatter was referred to locally as Tirlhowe, which superstition said must always be mentioned when the early Xtian site of Bridikirk/Brideskirk (near the Brough/Knowst of Bigging) was named. wideford Posted by wideford
