This is a lovely set of sites. Drive up through Bagbie onto the aptly named Blackmire Moor and use the cow byre as your starting point. Stu & I picked our way through the mud onto the field behind the byre and walked up the stone. From here were crossed over towards the tall drystone wall with the dark quarry in the background. On the other side of the wall you'll find the cairn and a sweet four poster. The cairn appears to have two portal stones. You've gotta take in the whole scene and imagine that the wall doesn't exist, the circle, the portalled cairn and the stone make a sweet little trio. Well worth a look. fitzcoraldo Posted by fitzcoraldo

From the standing stone, visible from the track to Cambret Farm, the circle and four poster are 500ft away to the north over the otherside of the drystone wall.
Unsure of access rights...but we managed without any hassles.

I revisited Bagbie cairn complex to investigate a speculative standing stone listed as Canmore ID 281565. There is an earthfast stone c. 3 feet by 3 feet built into the dry stane dyke 30 yards S of the pair of stones in Bagbie Cairn. It is in direct alignment between the cairn and Bagbie standing stone. The stone located at NX 4979 5635 is an intriguing addition to a complex site.
There is a public path to the cairn starting at the right angle bend just before Bagbie Sheds however the sign has fallen to the ground.

If you pick up a copy of the leaflet "Walking in and around Newton Stewart & Creetown" there is a route to the Cairn & 4 poster that avoids having to jump over any walls. fitzcoraldo Posted by fitzcoraldo

Bagbie Wall Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

There is a dry stane dyke c. 30 yards S of Bagbie Cairn. A short standing stone c. 2.5 feet high and 2.5 feet wide has been incorporated into the wall.
Canmore ID 281565 (go to Links) notes that the stone is "on a direct sight-line between Bagbie standing stone and the two upright stones on the ESE edge on Baggie cairn." (J Pickin 2005).

Bagbie Four Poster (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Standing right beside the Bagbie Cairn, this excellent little Four Poster is a great little site to come and chill out at, perhaps following a trek to see one of the other stone circles in the vicinity?

I was lucky enough to experience a golden evening here, with nothing but sea birds from nearby Wigtown Bay as company. Noisy little blighters, so they are....... A large monolith is visible in the field beyond a tall drystone wall, the rather unusual cairn completing a fine mini prehistoric ritual complex upon this obscure hillside. Obscure, yes, but that's just the way I like 'em.

Dumfries and Galloway? Bring it on!
