The northern stones. View from the north.
A probable single stone row measuring 14.6m long, including 8 small and medium-sized stones situated on a south facing slope. The stones measure up to 0.67m high but most are much smaller, and one is recumbent. The stones towards the southern end of the row are much closer together and are separated from the northern pair by a gap. The row is orientated NNE to SSW and stands in an area with broadly contemporary standing stone, cairns and another stone row.

Category: Probable. This looks like a stone row although the possibility of it being the much truncated remains of a field boundary cannot be entirely discounted. On balance the stone row explanation seems to fit the field evidence best.
This stone row is of Type S1. Information on this form of stone row and other rows of this type is available here.

Limited road verge car parking is available at SN 72829 83600. From here walk up the farm track to SN 72866 83754. Head east following the fence and cross the small stream. The ground is very uneven so take care. Once across the stream head south east towards the row.
