Three slender pillars (up to 4.2 metres high), known as 'The Three Fingers',
rise dramatically against the sky, evenly spaced and set into joints in the exposed rock surface.
A fourth stone lies prostrate nearby, out of line.
A fifth stone was removed in the 19th century and now stands in the Somerville Estate at Castletownshend


The stone-row seen from nearby Knockdrum Stone Fort.

This monument is dramatic from every angle and in every light.

A crepuscular picture.

(The beast is a bullock, not a sheep.)
