The group of six stones seen from the east. Five of them are clustered, one stands lonesome to the southwest.


To the southeast of a bungalow about 500 metres west from the Boho High Cross there is a group of six stones, five of them are clustered in the northeast quarter of the group.
The townland is named Reyfad, from the Irish Ráth Fada, meaning "long fort".
The Reyfad area is also known for its cave system and cascades.

Five of the six stones carry concentric ring carvings and cupmarks on their visible surfaces, and some of these carvings have a significant depth, despite the age and the elements.
The largest of the five stones in the cluster has dozens of this concentric rings on the side to the northeast (40°). This same stone has also a row of hollows on the side to southwest.

There's a nice view over Ross Lough to the east from up here.
