Standing Stones (NR) (Site of) OS 6" map, (1960)
Three large stones, once upright but now lying flat or nearly so. Supposed to mark the sites of graves. Name Book 1871.
One stone still stands at a steep angle.
Info from Professor Thom to OS, 9 September 1970.
Four rough boulders, three just protruding through peat, and fourth, most SW, nearly prostrate and measuring 1.3m by 0.9m by 0.5m. None can be identified with ONB sketches (1872). They are not standing stones. It cannot be established if they are standing stones. It cannot be established if they are naturally or artificially placed; if the latter, their purpose is obscure.
Visited by OS (A A) 23 March 1972.
No change. Visited by OS (N K B) 17 March 1982.
