Lyonston (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Take the Kirkmichael/Straiton B7045 turn on the NE edge of the A77 in Maybole. After around 600 yards there is a lay-by on your R. Walk 30 yards back towards Maybole to a gate on the L into a large field. Follow the dry stane dyke for around 250 yards looking L to locate Lyonston Stone in the adjacent field.
Canmore ID 41670 (go to Links) gives a full description of this "rounded granite boulder about 1.4m high."

Templand Mains (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Folklore

Canmore ID 65264 (go to Links) states that Templand Mains standing stone is the "remains of a stone circle which gives its name to the farm "Temple-land" on which it stands (Scots Mag 1806). Two of the stones were still standing in 1806 (R M F Watson 1901) and one in 1913."

Ardilistry Four Poster

Ardilistry (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Taking the advice of previous Stoners, I tramped across boggy marshland taking the SW edge of the knoll as a bearing.
The stone circle is c.20 yards SW from the knoll however it is difficult to spot as all 4 stones are less than 0.5m high.
Canmore ID 38005 (go to Links) states that Ardilistry is "a probable 'four-poster'".
Given the diminutive nature of Ardilistry Four Poster there is greater satisfaction in having found it than having seen it.
PS I investigated a suspicious gap in the knoll to the NE. I found a narrow channel lined with stones and a possible stone chamber. It is not listed as a cairn so I would be interested in other Stoners opinions.

I love to travel, especially to antiquarian sites. I'm working through the extensive Cornwall site list with an annual week holiday. Avebury is my favourite spiritual destination. Las Vegas is my favourite sinful destination.

I also enjoy hill climbing however as time passes the hills grow steeper. I have climbed around 30 munros, however, I've also climbed The Cobbler, Stac Pollaidh and Suilven so height is not the only criteria.

I used to play golf (9 handicap) and support Queen of the South however I gave up both bad habits. Horse racing was a more recent obsession. I've been in the Queen's stand on Derby Day, an amazing experience. At the moment my current obsession is music gigs: Arcade Fire, Dinosaur Jr, Sparks, Jesus and Mary Chain and Belle & Sebastian, my favourite band.
