The Glantane East complex seen from the north, with the fallen stone in the foreground.


The field where this stone circle is in was very well protected, with a net fence, a run of barbed wire and a run of electric fence. It's 150 metres from the crossroads where we parked our car.
There's a stone circle with 4 fallen stones and 5 still standing. On the ground is a very long stone that would have been about 3 metres tall if it was erected.
Another very tall, about 4 metres, upright stone is about 2 metres from the circle. It's 80 centimetres wide and about 40 centimetres thick.
The two tall stones are aligned south-north, with the erected stone being the south one.
