Nether Largie

Nether Largie st. stones image

A group of five standing stones, in a field on the west side of the Kilmartin Burn (Argyll).
It is a complex setting formed by two pairs of stones with a single cup-and-ring marked one between them. The distance between the two pairs of stones is about 65m.
The setting is roughly aligned NE-SW and the five pillars are from 2.7m to 2.85m high (the highest is the broken one on the left of the photo).
Between the two pairs of stones there are two intermediate square settings of four low stones each. The cup-and-ring marked tall upright stands in the centre of the northernmost square setting.
There are two other standing stones (one is only a stump) 100m to the north-west and 300m to the west.
