[Argyll Region]

This stone circle was constructed 4000 years ago. It is described as a stone circle and has a burial cist in the center. The cist is surrounded by a stone circle and there is a second circle further out. The larger circle is about 40 feet in diagmeter, while the smaller is about 10 feet.

Two of the standing stones have concentric circles. They are barely visible due to weathering. The circle originally had 22 stones, only thirteen are left.
