Archaeology Notes

NX17SW 43 c. 10 71.

Smith (1897) records that 'about half a mile west from Friar's Kirk Cairn there is a stone circle, 12 paces in diameter; and half a mile further west, on a bit of rising ground, there is a large cairn, 7 paces in diameter, and 4 feet 6 inches high. 'The large cairn is the chambered cairn on Claywarnies (NX17SW 2), but this is only 850m W of the 'Friar's Kirk Cairn', which is the large cairn on the S end of Druman wherran (NX17SW 7). The nature and location of the 'stone circle' are unknown and the whole area has now been afforested.
