A closer view of this fine circle, commanding a fine view from its exposed position over Bantry Bay.
As at Drombohilly (Kerry), almost 10 km NE, in this circle also 9 stones survive, with some unfortunately missing: one can be seen in a field-fence some distance to the N. They range from l.3 to almost 2 metres in height.
Outside the circle, to the E, is an associated standing stone (right).
The axial stone (second from the left) is, unusually, set with its long axis vertical.
