The circle seen from outside the timber fence.


The stone circle is well signposted and has a convenient parking. From the car park, after a 70 metres walk on a muddy path, we reached the stone circle, protected in a timber fence. The monument is under the care of the State, so it's well kept.
The circle has a diameter of 13 metres and it consists of 39 stones, but at least 6 of them are replacements and are marked MOF. These stones have an height that varies from 20 centimetres to 1.50 metres. The entrance faces east-southeast.
Outside the circle, opposite the entrance, is a stone row, almost tangent to the circle, made of 23 stones, 20-30 centimetres tall, 14 metres long. The stone row is perfectly aligned north-south.
