Key Sites

This site, also known as the 'Hill O’ Many Stanes', is the best-preserved stone row in Caithness (ND 295384). Around 200 stones are arranged in at least 22 rows running north and south. The stones are less than a 1m high. Like many Caithness settings what we see today may be different from the original construction. Over a hundred years ago another 50 stones were visible on the site. Originally, there may have been more than 500 stones. There seems to be a main fan pattern in the centre, with a separate fan on the west and a few stray slabs on the east.
