Archaeology Notes

NN74SE 1 7678 4249.

A stone circle consisting of seven stones, three fallen and four upright, lies in a fir plantation about a mile SE of Falls of Acharn. The site is crossed by a modern dyke which overlies one of the stones on the NW arc. (3) The maximum height of the upright sgtones is 5'8". Gillies "turned up" the centre of the circle, disclosing at a depth of 5" a black deposit 2' square by 5" deep which contained calcined bones.
