|Description ||This is an 11 or 13 stone circle of which 10 are visible.|
The two taller stones still standing are the portals, two others and the axial are also upright. the remaining stones are present but fallen.
This view from the North shows the commanding position looking over Bantry Bay.
The fence line is one edge of the former Glengarrif to Castletown-Bere mediaeval road.
This trackway has elements that suggest it was in use at the time of the circles construction and has remained in one form or other until the present. It is currently part of the Beara Way footpath but is closed to the public over a dispute with landowners.
| That's a shame. If I was going back I'd love to re-visit Beara and walk here... good weather guaranteed, of course! ;-)|
