(NH 8970 1347) Stone Circle (NR)

OS 6" map, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1903)

A Clava-ring cairn. There is very little cairn material left, and the central area seems to have been disturbed. The outer kerb is almost complete, with a diameter of 42' and slight traces of a bank against the outside; only 5 of the inner ring stones are now visible. The outer ring of monoliths now consists of 4 stones set about 17 ft. from the kerb, but there were 7 in 1877 (Grant 1885).

A cup-marked stone is said to have been found at the base of one of the monoliths, but there is no evidence of it today.

J Stuart 1870; Grant 1885; C G Cash 1905; A S Henshall 1963, visited 1957.

A Clava-type ring cairn, as described and planned by Henshall, except that only three stones now remain of the perimeter of the chamber.

Surveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (N K B) 14 November 1966.
