A probable single stone row of unknown length, included at least 10 medium-sized stones of which five were upright in the late 1950’s. The row was orientated north east to south west and was destroyed before 1977. A photograph taken by Mr H.G. Hurrell shows the five standing stones and it certainly looks like a stone row. However, a 1940’s aerial photograph of this field shows a possible prehistoric field system and for this reason this row should be considered probable. The row stood near a long cairn, three stone rows, several round cairns, prehistoric settlements and field systems.
