Full Description

NC73SW 12 7161 3486.

At NC 7161 3486 there is a close-knit group of four stone rows totalling 42 stones. These run from four larger stones to converge northwards over a distance of 12.4m where they disappear under a clearance cairn. Soil movement has probably caused some displacement, hence the irregularity of the rows.
Information from MS, A Field Survey in the Loch Rimsdale Area, June 1975, site ref 12, illust (see archive).

Of the 42 stones noted and planned by Loch Rimsdale Survey, only 30 are above ground level. Otherwise the rows are as described.
Surveyed at 1:10,000. Visited by OS (J B) 6 April 1977.
