|Straight (Yes or No) :||Sea View: Yes|
|Context: Standing stones|
|Notes: Burl records this as an uncertain stone alignment. The considerable distance between the stones combined with the fact that the western stone is of a very different character and form to other accepted prehistoric standing stones on Jura means that it very unlikely that this site represents the remains of a stone row. It is much more likely that some of the stones form parts of separate sites. Future discoveries may require this identification to be reviewed, but on the basis of the available evidence it seems unlikely that there was a stone row at Knockchrome.|
