Stone Circle (Remains of): About 300 yards E of the N end of Loch Bhriust, near the watershed of the island of Bernaray, is a group of five large stones, possibly the remains of a stone circle. Four of the stones are not only prostrate, but seem to have been removed from their original positions. The one undisturbed pillar stone is 3ft 10ins high and 7ft 6ins in girth, and has a large irregular boulder, 7ft 4ins long by 3ft broad and 2ft 6ins thick, lying against its NW base. Two other blocks, 3ft 8ins in length by 2ft in breadth, and 4ft 8ins in length by 2ft 3ins in breadth, lie 8ft 8ins and 20ft 2ins distant respectively from the standing stone to the NW. A third prostrate stone, 3ft 6ins by 2ft, lies some 53ft 8ins S by W of the erect pillar, and 35ft 6ins from the nearest prostrate pillar.
