Stone row associations

cairn-o-get-dscf4083

The Cairn O’ Get chambered cairn in Caithness stands in the vicinity of several stone rows.

Many stone rows are found close to broadly contemporary sites. The most frequent associations are with cairns or barrows, other stone rows, settlements, stone circles, field systems and chambered cairns.  At least 76% of the rows are associated with at least one known broadly contemporary site confirming that most rows do not survive in splendid isolation and exist within potentially informative contexts. A new page has been added to this web site that looks at the character of some of these relationships.
