NO06NE 22 0745 6609.

This small stone setting is situated on a low rounded knoll immediately outside the new forestry plantation on the SW flank of Faire na Paitig. The N and E stones are still upright, measuring 0.55m and 0.4m in height respectively, but the other two are both now leaning towards the NW; when upright the W stone would be at least 0.5m high and the S stone 0.4m high.
