|Description ||the definite still standing stone.
Going back about Stromness rather than through it I came to the main Kirkwall-Stromness road and thought I had a chance to finally 'do' the Deepdale Stones. Except I still got it wrong. What I had actually spotted previously were Deepdale Cottage stones. To the left of Deepdale Cottage is a short sandy-coloured standing stone and in front of it a triangular block of the same colour. There are a one or two other stones about these of different constitution and there may be some earthwork arcing about. On the opposite side of the road at Deepdale is a solitary standing stone of a different complexion, lichen-covered like many another. None on NMRS natch. Continuing around the hill you come to a large patch of rough ground and it is off the top left corner of this that the actual Deepdale Stones are located.
