Excavated and reconstructed, this Bronze Age
stone circle of eight boulders encloses an area where many small fires had
been lit. Eight small cairns had been constructed over pits where corpses
had been burnt. This use of the circle as a burial ground very probably
followed long after its construction, when the real significance of the stone circle was
forgotten or no longer important.
The circle is 10m (33 ft) in diameter
and instead of being squared-off, its stones are unshaped, although most
have a pointed tip and are embedded in a pit of gravel.
