076 Two large stones supposed to be the remains of a Stone Circle situated on a Knoll 1/3 of a mile west of Woodlands. One of them is 18 links long by 10 broad and the other is 10 links square, both lying down . As these Stones are situated "to the west of the House at Clyne" (Now called Woodlands) they may be the remains of the remarkable site of former times of which Dr [Doctor] Robertson's is given in the Stat. [Statistical] Account *

Clachan Biorach [note]
* The stones fell during a Storm in 1860, when
one of them was smashed. The unbroken one is large
and in form that of an isosceles triangle being very sharp
at the apex. The other stone was of the same shape
before it was broken - it is now a shapeless boulder.
The name signifies "Sharp pointed Stones," which was
quite descriptive when the stones were standing, pointed
ends upwards.
