Loupin' Stanes

Loupin' Stanes image

A slightly oval setting of 12 stones, situated on the left side of the River White Esk (Dumfries and Galloway), on an artificial platform. The ring is 10 x 11 m in diameter. Ten stones are low, while the two on the WSW side of the ring are taller (about 1.6 m). They could have marked the entrance. Some stones around the circle are the probable remains of other two rings. The Girdle Stanes stone circle is about 600 m to the south.
