Saval More

Standing Stones/Stone Pair

These two huge standing stones are located in a private burial ground. They were the first of several enormous stones we would visit on this trip. The eastern pointed stone stands at 2.2 metres high and almost a metre wide. About 2.5 metres to the west stands the smaller flat topped rectangular stone it stands 1.6 metres high and just over half a metre wide. The fact that one has a flat top and the other a pointed top may suggest they are a male and female pair of stones. There is another standing stone located about 15o metres south of here, on the opposite side of the road.

The stones are situated behind these crosses
