Category: Probable. Although described as inscribed stones it is more likely that this was a stone row and indeed the standing stone at SN 96377 77641 may have formed part of the row. The early descriptions of this feature are convincing and it possible to be fairly confident that there was a row at this location.
This stone row is of Type S8. Information on this form of stone row and other rows of this type is available here.
