Nearest town: Kenmare

This dramatic stone circle crowns a knoll and offers magnificent views.
Like the circle at Ardgroom Outward, almost 10 km to the SW, it features pillar-like stones.
Nine stones out of a probable 11 now remain (one of the missing stones being the axial or recumbent),
enclosing an area over 8 metres in diameter.
A short distance to the E is a rectangular grass-covered stone-built mound
which may have something to do with the circle.

A solarisation of the picture above.

...and the nearby Wedge-tomb in Summer.
