The lone standing stone and other stones in the foreground seen from roughly the east.


At this site it's possible to see a stone circle, two standing stones and cairn. The place is 10 metres higher than the spot where we left our car and it's fenced for protection from the sheep around.
The stone circle has 5 stones with a diameter of 3 metres. Two of the 5 stones of the circle have fallen, and are 1.20 metres tall each. The remaining upright stones, on the north half of the circle, have a height from 1.20 to 1.30 metres.
The two standing stones are actually one standing and one fallen stone, and are 4 metres south-southwest (210°) from the circle. The fallen stone is 3 metres tall, the upright stone is 3.50 metres tall and leans to the northwest by 10° and is 3 metres far from the first one.
The radial cairn is 6 metres east from the stone circle, and is made of 30 upright stones, not higher than 20 centimetres, around a low mound.
