Archaeology Notes

(HP 5676 0091) Standing Stones (NR).

OS 6" map, Shetland, 2nd ed., (1900)

Two similar and supposedly ancient standing stones set about 8' apart. They are about two feet square, four feet high and tapering.

OS Name Book 1878.

Two stones as described. They stand close to an old field wall largely built of stones set on edge, and it is probable that they formed part of a wall now denuded.

Visited by OS (NKB), 3 May 1969.
