The stone row with the Rossnakilla standing stone in the background.


This stone row is only 50 metres far from the Rossnakilla standing stone, that is in the adjacent field.
The two fields are separated by a double electric fence. It is made of three stones perfectly aligned southwest-northeast along an overall length of 6 metres.
The southwest stone is 2 metres tall, 1 metre wide and 40 centimetres thick.
The middle stone is 1.50 metres far from the first one, is 1.80 metres tall, 80 centimetres wide and 50 centimetres thick.
The northeast stone is 1.20 metres far from the middle one, is 2 metres tall, 1 metre wide and 30 centimetres thick.
This stone seems to have some faint ogham symbols on one of its edges, or more probably they're only marks left by some knives being sharpened on the stone.
