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.
