This great multi-stone circle is located in a pasture on a shoulder on the north slopes
of the Maughanaclea hills, overlooking the Owngar river valley. The circle is not
complete but appears to have consisted of thirteen stones. Twelve survive, five of which,
including south entrance stone are prostrate. The orthostats measure 1.6m to 0.8m in
height,7m to 2.1m in width and 0.3m to 0.5m in depth. The internal measurement of
the circle along the main axis, whcih is aligned NE-SW, is 11.3m. Two boulder-burials,

I
& II , stand within circle.
