There are a large number granite rocks in the area to the south east of the Hanging Stone. It was not possible to resolve them into a single convincing row. View from the south east with the Hanging Stone on skyline.

From this angle several stones seem to form a sinuous alignment, but the large number of other rocks in the area means that positive identification was not possible. A detailed survey may resolve the matter, but for the present the identification of this site remains uncertain. View from south east.
