Archaeology Notes

NN74NW 6 7314 4641

See also NN74NW 8.

(NN 7293 4638) Standing stone.

Information from M E C Stewart, 2 February 1956.

A block of quartzose schist, deeply riven vertically. Its basal girth is 11'5" (3.48m) and maximum height 6'2" (1.88m). In 1838 a cup marked stone (NN74NW 8) lay a short distance from the standing stone, having been undermined about the end of the 18th century.

NSA 1845; F R Coles 1910.

NN 7314 4641. A standing stone as described.

Some 5.0m to the NE is a partially buried, smooth block lying prone; only 1.0m of its length is exposed. This was possibly a second standing stone. There is some doubt concerning the original position of the cup marked stone (see NN74NW 8). If it stood in close proximity to the standing stone, it suggests a four-poster of stone circle.

Surveyed at 1:10,000.

Visited by OS (NKB) 2 October 1975

No change to previous field report.

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (MJF) 1 December 1978.

(Formerly scheduled as standing stone, Dalraoich). Scheduled as Bridge of Lyon, standing stone.
