This mini-Beaghmore is simply marked as stone circles on the OS map. Burl says that there are 5 circles here in all (wish I had read the book before I set out), 2 of which are immediately apparent 100 metres over the gate and into the field. These are the only 2 that I saw today, not knowing that there were 3 more in the vicinity.
Like at Beaghmore, all the stones of the circles are low, none over half a metre tall. Burl says the northern has 10 stones and the southern 14. The metre and a half tall standing stone is offset to the east.
