| It's a bit hard to make out here, but this looks like the lipped* basin, with the standing area shown to left and below it. *(It reminds me of a hairdressers' basin, with the splayed lip where one would lean back and rest their head!) Anyway, it's easy to stand on that ledge beside the basin which faces towards Boscawen Un approx. We're also looking back and down to where the little circle is, and I think the stones are just visible to centre left of this view.|
