(ND 168 519) Standing Stones (NR)

OS 6" map, Caithness, 1st ed., (1871)

Standing Stones (NR) (Site of)

OS 6" map, (1960)

Three large stones, once upright but now lying flat or nearly so. Supposed to mark the sites of graves.

Name Book 1871.

One stone still stands at a steep angle.

Information from Professor Thom to OS, 9 September 1970.

Four rough boulders, three just protruding through the peat, and the fourth, the most south-westerly, nearly prostrate and measuring 1.3m by 0.9m by 0.5m. None can be identified with the Ordnance Survey Name Book (ONB) sketches (1872). They are not standing stones. It cannot be established if they are standing stones. It cannot be established if they are naturally or artificially placed; if the later, their purpose is obscure.

Visited by OS (A A) 23 March 1972.

No change to the previous report.

Visited by OS (N K B) 17 March 1982.
