Croft Moraig

Croft Moraig image

A complex stone circle built in three phases. In the first a horseshoe-shaped setting of 14 wooden posts was erected with a hearth at its centre. A ditch surrounded the site.
In a second phase this was replaced by a similar-shaped setting of 8 standing stones graded in height: it was 6m x 7.5m in diameter and one of the north-east boulders was decorated by cupmarks.
In the third period twelve big schist stones were erected around the previous stone setting, with two outlying boulders marking an entrance to the east-south-east. This final stone circle is 12m in diameter.
