(NM 9067 2914) Stone Circle (NR)

OS 1:10,000 map, (1975)

This is the only known stone circle in Lorn. The NE half of the circle stands in what is now an area of marshy ground, the remainder at the edge of an arable field. The circle measures about 20 metres in diameter and is composed of 31 rounded boulders of various sizes, the largest measuring not more than 1 metre in height. A short distance outside the circle, on the NNE, are four other stones which have probably been displaced. The interior of the circle is featureless.
