A unique megalithic horseshoe. The name means "field of the stones". 34 stones remain from 54, mostly on the western side. As the photograph shows, the slabs are pointing towards the centre of the circle, rather than the typical side-by-side arrangement.
Set among the heather with a good view of the mountainous Scottish highlands to the south-west.
Access: Just south of Loch Semster, immediately east of a lane, a kilometer off the A895. See above for map links
