The stone circle seen from the west.


North of the more famous Grange Lios stone circle is this smaller yet beautiful stone circle.
It is a perfect circle and has a diameter of about 17 m along the east-west axis, with 15 stones still in place. The circle is incomplete, the southwest section of the arrangement has a gap that indicates that some of the stones have been removed or lost.
The recumbent stone is on the east-southeast (110°) side of the circle. The tallest stone is under a tree on the southwest (150°) side.
The grass of the field where the circle is had been recently cut except for the grass around and inside the monument so we had a limited impression of the place.
