This superb alignment commands fine views and comprises 4 stones increasing in height from 220 to over 340cm. A prostrate stone between the 2 smallest is not original. In the next field, 400m to the N, is a boulder-burial: a large rounded boulder is set on 3 supporting stones between 40 and 60cm high, and a little above a fourth stone.
Access: 5.6 km ( 3 ½ ml) N by W of Bandon and about 70m W of a by-road. See above for map links
