Thirteen out of the original 17 stones of this impressive circle survive, the most westerly of which is the fine flat-topped axial,
which has two egg-shaped cup-marks, one with a surrounding ring.
The two portal stones (1.8 metres high) are shown here behind it, on the NE side.
They might be interpreted as female and male.


The photo below is from the excellent entry on the
Voices from the Dawn website.


Downhill from the circle is an ancient cooking-site or fulacht fíadh.
These were used from Neolithic times right up to the Middle Ages.
