Category: Unlikely. R.N. Worth reported that this row consisted of a line of stones leading NW from a fine cairn. “Owing to a very ancient hedge having been erected parallel with this line, the stone were left, where not taken, in the ditch of the hedge. This became in time a bog, and the stones sank so that only their nozzles appear above the bog, and some places can only be dectected by sounding with stick or crowbar. Stones small.” (Worth, R.N., 1895, 439). This description makes it clear that this is unlikely to be a stone row since a row composed of small stones would not have survived the ditch digging involved in the building of the hedge. It is much more likely that they represented stones exposed in the side of the ditch.
