|I assume this is a legit stone circle then? Amazing... even the concrete wall, rotary washing line and garden shed for effect. Now that's a *proper* rockery...|

|Presumably it's got a one line listing in the 2000 Burl gazeteer too. Looks like one of those half-way ring cairn types of thing.|
|In my 1976 Burl, he just indicates that there is an "outlying cairn" at Croftcroy. That seems more likely.|
|Just a thought, but do we have any information on the Croftcroy Chambered Tomb? The Portal gives it virtually the same grid reference and with a bit of imagination you could believe that this was the remains of a chambered circular cairn with the revetment wall and collapsed central chamber surviving. |
|The other picture is visually more persuasive of the tomb notion!|
|I don't think I've ever seen a sorrier sight! I want to take a sledgehammer to that ugly wall around it, and the horrid wall behind it, and kick away the flower pots, and trash the washing line, and scrub off the dull green moss, and........... wake it up! (That's if it IS a real ancient site - ha!ha!) If it's only a recent rockery then they deserve to live with the mess!|
| Hi Angie....in view of the recent contacts, perhaps we need to think of the retaining 'horrid' wall as a protective feature put there to preserve the ancient from the modern?........|

Please tell us more about the stones.
| Don't worry Angie, we all like a rant sometimes, myself included. Its a way of getting things off our chest, so too speak.|
