Standing Stones, Glac Mhor, Dervaig: On Glac Mhor, 850m ESE of Dervaig and 400m S of NM45SW 4, there are four stones, three of which (A - C on plan) are approximately on a line running NNW and SSE. Stone A, which is now embedded in a dyke, is 1.07m high and 0.8m by 0.5m at ground-level. Although it was originally taller, stone B is now 1.3m high and measures 0.65m in breadth by 0.6m in thickness. Stone C is a shattered block 1m high and 1.15m by 1.1m at the base. The fourth stone (D) forms one side of a gate-way through the wall and is probably not in its original position; it measures 1.1m in height and 0.8m by 0.8m at the foot.

RCAHMS 1980, visited 1972

When seen in April 1972, these stones were in a similar condition to that described by the RCAHMS. They do not form a stone circle, but an alignment similar to those described on NM45SW 4 and NM45SW 5.

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (RD) 27 April 1972
