Standing Stones

At the end of a dike near to the extreme east end of Saline golf course, stands a huge whinstone boulder of irregular shape. It measures 7 feet 10 inches (2.4 m.) in height and its girth is some 14 feet (4.3 m.) and it has a slight inclination towards the west. As its position is on an ancient boundary line between two estates, Bandrum and Kinneddar, it is possible that it is simply a march or boundary stone. Due west from this stone, at a distance of 162 feet (50 m.) there is, however, another smaller stone built into a continuation of the same dike. The two stones together suggest the remains of a stone circle, the rest of which has been swept away by the cultivation of the neighbouring fields. There is, however, no record of other standing stones in the local area.
