Visit Notes

Saturday, 4th May 2002

This three stone row is very impressive indeed. It is aligned SE-NW with the taller stone to the NW. This stone is 1.7m tall and 40cm to a side in plan. The other stones reduce in size with the smallest being around 1.1m tall and slightly thinner.

I am surprised that these are not mentioned more often as they are not too far away from Drumskinny stone circle and people must drive past regularly. There are steps into the field so I guess people must visit here, they just don't mention them.

About Coordinates Displayed

This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.

Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.

Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.

The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.

UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.

ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
