This pair stand in the fields of Longloch Farm just north of the Binn Hill at the back of Burntisland. Use your map carefully, I'm not even going to try to describe the route! Permission should be sought at the farm but is readily granted.
Canmore says of them: "These two standing stones are situated on the summit of a gently rising pasture. The ground immediately surrounding their bases may have been made higher. The stones are vertical, stand 19'2" across centres and exactly E-W. The bases of both are packed with small stones. The W stone is a smooth-sided block of quartziferous rock 6'2" high, 12'8" maximum girth. Close to it is a block of stone 1'4" above ground. The E stone is of much weathered whinstone and is 5'7" high. Its greatest girth is 12'9". Several small circular hollows are attributed to weathering. It is unlikely that the stones formed part of a stone circle." What you see is pretty much what is described, and there's no point in adding to it, other than to say that the two stones each have a very unique appearance from each other. The view over the Forth from here, even on a cold and windy winter afternoon, is pretty stunning.|
