Featured Sites – the stone rows at Ardnacross

Ardnacross, South in the foreground and the northern row beyond the cairns. View from south (Scale 1m).

A pair of rows each consisting of three large orthstats stand on a natural platform on a hillside at Ardnacross on the Isle of Mull. The rows are separated by three cairns. Only one stone in the southern row is upright and all of the slabs in the northern row are now recumbent. Short rows consisting entirely of large slabs are common in the west of Scotland.
