042 Standing Stone, Dodlaw Burn, Hownam.

Prev | Next

Description
This single standing stone is located on exposed pasture and is probably associated with nearby burial cairns although these are difficult to make out in the long grass. The stone measures 0.66 x 0.45 x 0.81m.

Directions
Take a minor road south from Hownam, keeping right at the junction just after the village. Continue past the entrance to Chatto and stop at the cattle grid and sheep pens. Follow the trail up the steep slope of Dodlaw, opposite Chatto. The stones are approx where the track crosses Dodlaw Burn.

Parking
On grass verge beside sheep pens/cattle grid.

Fieldnotes
Although marked as a standing stone, this isolated stone is probably the remains of a burial cairn as there are numerous similar remains in the immediate area. At the time of my visit, the grass was long and the weather fine and sunny, giving a most pleasant air to the site.
