Archaeology Notes

NJ64NW 12 c. 62 45

Possibly on map sheet NJ64SW.

'On the summit of the Hill of Balnoon, or rather on its neck towards the east, there was till lately a lofty upright stone called 'The Conwath' or 'Conway Stone', and by some 'The Charter Stone'. It was surrounded by a slight ditch... The old name of the parish was Conveth.'

J Stuart 1855.

No sign of a standing stone was evidenced at Hill of Balnoon centred at NJ 6265 4507. There is a farm with the name 'Charterstone' at NJ 6302 4502, but the present owners know nothing of this feature.

Visited by OS (JTT), 9 September 1964.
