NX64SE 7 691 447.

In 1887 Coles noted a stone circle SE of Little Balmae (NX 691 447), comprising 5 large granite boulders, in situ, and the hollows of another five which had been removed at some unknown date, forming a 90' diameter circle, with a slight, possibly artificial mound at its centre. RCAHMS, however, could not locate this alleged stone circle.

F R Coles 1895; RCAHMS 1914, visited 1911

No stones fitting Cole's description could be found in the area indicated, nor is the site known locally.
