Barnes Lower, county Donegal
C 107 245 - Sheet 2
The larger of two massive standing-stones (less than a metre apart is) over 1.8 metres square,
has many cup-marks (some with large rings) and wide, shallow grooves on its E face.
Decorated stones in Britain tend to be important 'marker' stones in astronomical
but I have no information on the alignments of the various stones in Barnes Lower.
The rule is one metre high.
See the Field Guide/Gazetteer for another county Donegal petroglyphic menhir at Ardmore.
In the same townland not far away is a single stone, 1.3 metres high (C108 239),
and farther off, on high ground overlooking Lough Salt (C 122 263), is a three-stone row whose highest stone is 1.2 metres,
