Notes: This site was originally recorded as a stone row. However, the central stone is clearly not earthfast and was probably dumped between the standing stones during stone clearance activity in the vicinity. There are large numbers of stone pairs in this part of Scotland and it is therefore more likely to belong to that class of monument.
