Category: Possible. This site was destroyed before it could be recorded in detail and because the stones are described as contiguous the possibility should be acknowledged that this site represented a wall rather than a stone row. For this reason is should be considered as possible at best.
This stone row is of Type S4. Information on this form of stone row and other rows of this type is available here.
