Featured Row – Auldearn

A pair of standing stones forming part of the row. View from north east.

A single stone row measuring 76.2m long, including six widely spaced large-sized boulders leading south east from a kerbed cairn with surrounding berm. Originally this row would have had restricted views of the nearby sea. Similar rows to this one can be found at Simon Howe and Callanish, South. Further information on the Auldearn stone row can be found here.
